National Occupational Standards for Nutritional Therapy

What is a National Occupational Standard?

National Occupational Standards (NOS) are statements of the skills, knowledge and used in employment, education and practise. They define the outcomes of competent performance.
Why do we need NOS?

NOS have numerous uses in the workplace or in the development of the individual. These include: recruitment, staff development review, promotion, identifying training or Continuing Professional Development (CPD) needs, and staff planning.
Defining NOS for Nutritional Therapy helps to define areas of expertise and common competences, helps to define the role of Nutritional Therapists, and creates a consistent approach to developing and accrediting training and qualifications.
National Occupational Standards are Crown Copyright.

The National Occupational Standards (NOS) for Nutritional Therapy were first published in 2003.

FNTP is currently working with the UK Regulator for Complementary Therapies, The General Regulatory Council for Complementary Therapies (GRCCT) and the Government Skills Sector Council, Skills for Health on a review of National Occupational Standards for twelve complementary therapies including Nutritional Therapy.
