Competences/ NOS

As the Sector Skills Council responsible for the health sector, one of our main functions is to develop, manage and update competences/NOS as the needs of the sector change, as work patterns shift, and as new operational practices, legislation and technologies are introduced. This ensures competences/NOS remain useful and effective.
