Cleaning Services - National Occupational Standards (NOS) Review 2019
  • Instructus Skills have been contracted to review and update the Cleaning and Support Services National Occupational Standards (NOS) suite. We need the views of those working in the sector on the content of the standards that are relevant to their business and provide feedback by completing this survey.

    All information captured in this survey will be used strictly for the purposes of this review. Where you wish to take part in further surveys or join a Steering Group, please opt in. We will not disclose your name and contact details to any third party. 

  • Cleaning and Support Services NOS Review

    The Key Purpose of the Cleaning and Support Services NOS suite is to ensure that employees in the sector are:

    “Working safely and effectively to ensure that the required area or surface is free from clutter, dirt and contamination while maintaining environmentally friendly and sustainable working conditions within designated procedures."

    The full suite is available as a set of individual standards - Cleaning and Support Services NOS
