Help shape the National Occupational Standards for Youth Work

Would you like to help develop the national occupational standards (NOS) which are the benchmark used to confirm competence for those working in job roles in the Youth Work Sector?

With the support of many of your fellow professionals from across the sector, the CLD Standards Council has reviewed a range of NOS for the Youth Work sector.  We are now consulting on their content in order to determine whether they truly reflect the skills and knowledge required for those carrying out job functions.  The next stage is to hear the views of as many people as possible, from right across the sector to make sure we have got the content right.

Your input is hugely valuable and will help to define the Standards which will be used to shape courses and qualifications, job descriptions and other talent management tools for individuals, employers, trainers and educators.

Please review the updated functional map and revised standards:

The online consultation will be running from now until 12 noon 25 February 2019.

Please answer the consultation questions in as little or as much detail as you want – reflecting your experience and current role.
