One of the major routes to raising standards and achieving a level of best practice across the sector is through the development of National Occupational Standards for the sector.
Many of our members have been involved in this very lengthy process and have been a huge asset to us in exploring what it is that the sector does, and how best practice should look, and the result is a full suite of standards covering over 100 functions undertaken at various levels across the sector.
Through the creation of our occupational and functional maps, we were able to identify 8 very clear areas in which we as a sector operate. These are deemed to be as follows:
1. Determine and plan for strategic parking requirements
2. Create and maintain parking provision
3. Manufacture and supply parking equipment, fixtures and systems
4. Provide and manage parking and related services
5. Establish parking restrictions and address infringements of regulations/rules
6. Deliver processes and provide information and advice
7. Maintain and enhance operational effectiveness
8. Manage and develop teams and individuals
Below each of these functions is a lower level description of what is involved. From this, we have been able to write a set of standards for each of the functions or activities carried out in achieving the function. These are all viewable by clicking on the relevant title above. This will take you to a PDF outlining the functions under each heading, and giving you access to the standards for each function. Alternatively, you can browse all standards by searching the national occupational standards directory
NOS can be used in many ways, and not least underpin success and best practice. If you want more information on how to use NOS to get the best out of your teams, your business, or yourself, please visit the links below for more info.
