National Occupational Standards (NOS)
The UK National Occupational Standards in Homeopathy (NOS) were developed by Skills for Health in collaboration with the profession. They describe the fundamental skills, knowledge and understanding needed to practise homeopathy to a nationally recognised level of competence. NOS in homeopathy cover the key activities undertaken by a homeopath, and focus on the basic skills, competencies, knowledge and understanding required in order to practise safely and effectively.
Where NOS are used to guide content in an educational context, the level of the course is defined by indicators based on level descriptors. These are clearly set out in quality assurance processes for course recognition within the profession.
