Health and Social Care (HSC) National Occupational Standards (NOS) are the authoritative occupational standards for people who work in health and social care settings with adults and/or children across the UK.
A full review of the HSC NOS is taking place this year. The review will consider all 215 of the HSC NOS and bring them up to date.
The review is the joint work of Skills for Care & Development (the partnership of Skills for Care, Children's Workforce Development Council, Care Council for Wales, General Social Care Council, Northern Ireland Social Care Council and Scottish Social Services Council) and Skills for Health.
On behalf of the adult social care sector in England, Skills for Care will contribute to the review using the extensive consultation material that we have recently gathered to develop new qualifications.
In addition, if you would like to participate in this survey and comment on the groups of NOS please follow the link below:
A revised draft of the NOS will be available for consideration from the summer onwards.
The closing date for the survey is Monday 20 June 2011.
