Review of “Outdoor Programmes”

SkillsActive has launched a review of the National Occupational Standards (NOS) for “Outdoor Programmes” and invites employers and other interested stakeholders to get involved in the review process.

These standards are typically, though not necessarily only, relevant to those working in the outdoors at or around Level 3 – a practitioner instructor/leader or facilitator of a 2-4 or more season’s experience. They could be involved in Outdoor Education, Recreation or Development Training, or a combination of these. This person may be taking/have taken first steps in supervisory management/responsibility for others in a relatively ‘junior’ management position.

• NOS describe what an individual needs to do, know and understand in order to carry out a particular job or function
• Standards take into account what businesses say they need for the future in terms of trends, technical advances and skills gaps

Please see paper available to download at red link at bottom of this email for more background to the review and NOS.

At this stage, SkillsActive is just asking for an initial indication of interest from you so that we can keep you involved as the review progress over the next 6 months.

If you would like to be involved, a simple response such as ‘Please keep me informed about the NOS review’ to either of the SkillsActive contacts below by Friday 5 July would be appreciated.

We look forward to working with you on this important review.
