Our Work

The PHSP working with others aims to support the essential skills development activity to ensure there are appropriate and consistent standards, qualifications and apprenticeships across the UK.

The key priority for 2017 is to support the development activity of the Plumbing and Domestic Heating trailblazer apprenticeship for England.

Similar skills development projects (such as qualification and apprenticeship reviews) will be supported in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland as required. The National Occupations Standards (NOS), Apprenticeship Frameworks and Qualifications in Scotland and Northern Ireland will shortly be reviewed and PHSP will be engaging with key stakeholders and employers to ensure that all relevant feedback is taken into account in ensuring that the NOS, Apprenticeship Frameworks and Qualifications remain fit for purpose and continue to meet the needs of employers and those working in the industry.
