Health and social care NOS are broken down into six suites with work areas and standards that give examples of how the standard can be used for that role. NOS can be used in the workplace to help with qualifications and training, career and continuing professional development (CDP) as well as for recruitment and performance management.

The NOS Guide for social care, early years and childcare gives advice, guidance and case studies to support using NOS in the workplace.
