Your insight and involvement in developing requirements for business skills is vital. To keep these requirements up to date, we are seeking your views on what defines successful business skills. Whether we are developing National Occupational Standards (NOS), qualifications or an apprenticeship framework we would like to hear from you.


  Take part by completing our latest consultation surveys below.



Instructus Skills NOS Review

As we move into the new year, we want to hear from you on which National Occupational Standards (NOS) you feel is your priority for us to review. Whilst we are moving across to Trailblazer standards in England, it is important for the other regions and for areas not currently in scope for Trailblazers that we review the relevance and impact of NOS, so please tell us in this brief survey which ones you feel need to be reviewed this year.

The deadline for this survey is Friday 5 February.



Business & Administration SVQ4 Review

Skills CFA have been commissioned to review the SVQ4 in Business Administration. Following preliminary work, a draft structure has been prepared. We are now consulting on this draft structure and would like your views to inform the final formation of this qualification. As such, a short survey has been prepared to gather your feedback and opinions.

This survey will only take 5-10 minutes to complete and is vital for this to project so as to ensure that the qualification is fit-for-purpose and meets the needs of business and learners.

In order to complete the survey you will need to download the draft qualification structre and also a document that contains the new units that have been added to the qualification:
