Mapping of the 2004 Management and Leadership Standards to the 2008 Management and Leadership Standards
A mapping document can be downloaded from this page detailing the changes made to the 2004 standards and the relationship between the 2004 standards and the 2008 standards. The document also details the new units introduced into the 2008 suite of standards.
For further information on how the standards may be used please contact a member of the MSC team on 020 7240 2826 or email@example.com.
Breakdown of NOS units by role
A number of the NOS units are expected to be equally useful at all management levels, whilst other units are likely to be most useful to managers at a specific level of responsibility.
A matrix showing how each unit applies to four typical levels of management responsibility is available to be downloaded from this page, along with the units grouped by level of managerial responsibility. It should, however, be noted that the majority of managers have 'spiky profiles', where their full range of responsibilities falls under more than one typical managerial level.
The matrix can be used as a general guide to the units, although users of the NOS should assess their individual role profile (which can be undertaken with the help of the standards) in order to determine which units will be most relevant to their existing and future responsibilities.
Credit and Levelling the 2008 NOS for the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework
In 2009 the full suite of Management and Leadership NOS were given credit ratings and levels using the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework Guidance. This allows the standards to be used in qualifications sitting on the Scottish Framework. Please note, the levels attached to each unit do NOT relate to the levels used in England and Wales.
The credit and levels attached to each unit can be viewed by downloading the relevant attachment on the right of this web page.
