NOS establish the benchmark of competence required in the sector. Developed in conjunction with technical experts and employers, they focus on the employers' needs to ensure employability skills are reflected in training. Training providers are required to part map courses to demonstrate relevance to the learner and the level of qualification.
Mapping is simply providing an index of where course content covers the national occupational standards. Content can be map to NOS from a number of resources within a course, such as PowerPoint presentations, manuals, lesson plans or books.
Please ensure that you only map to the relevant parts within your course; any areas that you cannot map to please leave empty or write N/A. You will not be penalised for not mapping where it is irrelevant. The NOS can be subjective so if you are unsure please contact a member of the endorsement team.
