Industrial relations – or employee relations – covers a range of job functions within organisations. In some businesses, trade union representatives play an important role in this area and require a range of skills in order to fulfill their functions.
We work together with the Trades Union Congress (TUC) to ensure the NOS (National Occupational Standards) for industrial relations professionals reflect industry needs and are fit for purpose.
Two Industrial Relations NOS suites have been developed to cover related job functions:
- Prevention and Management of Violence in the Workplace
- Trade Union Representatives & Professionals
Skills & Competencies for Prevention & Management of Violence in the Workplace
These NOS are designed to support employers and employees in the development of good practice and awareness in the workplace. They cover a full range of functions, from ensuring individual actions contribute to a positive and safe working culture, to investigating, evaluating, and resolving violent incidents at work.
Skills & Competencies for Trade Union Representatives & Professionals
These NOS are fully endorsed by the TUC and are aimed at Trade Union representatives, particularly workplace, safety, and learning representatives (ULRs), as well as union professional officers.
Define the skills your industry needs.
For work-based learning to truly match the range of challenges that you face it’s essential that apprenticeships and training are continuously developed. This is where we come in.
We work with employers, employer groups, and training providers to maintain and update a range of apprenticeship frameworks and standards. Through staged consultations, we ensure that qualifications work for learners, employers, and skills bodies alike.
