How to Read this Document


This document has two sections - Section I and Section II.
Section I: Compares the NOS listing in the Indian QP -Foreman Electrical Works with
Installation Electrician /NOSinUK Qualification NVQ Level 3.
Section II: Compares the competencies described in each of the Indian NOS with those of UK.

The language of the compared competencies of the two countries differs. However, the
competency pointers of the described competency can be mapped. Wherever the
competency pointer maps it is reported as ‘None’ underthe column ‘Gap in Indian NOS’.
Wherever the competency pointers do not map with the pointers or scope and range, it is
identified as a gap and the corresponding UK competency is noted under the column ‘Gap
in Indian NOS’.

Usage of Benchmarked Transnational Standards


There will be two types of users of these benchmarked standards. One type will be of
those individuals who are already trained and are certified on the corresponding Indian
QP. This set of individuals will have to undergo a bridge course comprising of the
identified gaps only. Thereafter, they will be assessed under the aegis of a UK Awarding
body through the Indian SSC on the competency portions acquired via the bridge course.
All qualifying individuals will be awarded a co-branded certificate comprising of logo of
Skill India, Indian SSC and UK Awarding Body.
Those individuals who wish to be certified afresh will have to undergo training on both the
Indian QP and the gaps in the Indian NOS with regard to UK competencies. Thereafter,
they will be assessed under the aegis of a UK Awarding body through the Indian SSC and
they will obtain a co-branded certificate comprising of logo of Skill India, Indian SSC and
UK Awarding Body.
