SkillsActive is the Sector Skills Council for Active Leisure, Learning and Well-Being. One of our key tasks is to produce and maintain, with the aid of employers in our sector, National Occupational Standards (NOS).

NOS specify the standard of performance an individual must achieve when carrying out a function in the workplace, together with the knowledge and understanding they need to meet that standard consistently. Essentially NOS are benchmarks of good practice.

Each NOS defines one key function in a job role. A NOS must be a concise and readable document, usually consisting of no more than five or six pages (some are only one or two). In their essential form, NOS describe functions, standards of performance and knowledge/understanding.

The NOS which support the roles that operate in the area of Spectator Safety are currently under review, and there is now an opportunity to have your say about how they look. The following questionnare is based on recently re-drafted NOS which reflect the thoughts of 'experts' in the area of spectator safety. The detail of this work along with downloadable NOS documents themselves can be found at:

This questionnaire is open until the 11th November 2018. Feedback from this UK wide consultation will then inform a second drafting of the NOS, with the new versions of the documents becoming 'live' January 2019.

Please note that in order to maximize feedback received on the standards, we have made most of the questions within this survey mandatory.
Thank you for your cooperation.
