National Occupational Standards

The National Occupational Standards are a set of job-related standards which highlight the performance expected when carrying out a specific occupation at a specific level. These standards define the main jobs that people carry out, and links qualifications to the requirements of the labour market. These standards are pegged to the Malta Qualifications framework and are thus compiled using the Learning Outcomes approach, which is achieved by stipulating knowledge, skills and competences. Such standards are then reviewed by the Sector Skills Units which include a number of industry relevant stakeholders, such as the economic sector, education and training, government and social partners.

The list below represents all the finalised national occupational standards.
