The concept of Job Contexts has been developed to describe the roles across the breadth of the nuclear industry. The Job Contexts provide a common framework for capturing the competences and Nuclear Industry Qualifications and Training for specific roles. The Job Context Framework was developed from the Resource Code listing (See Appendix B). This enables the
comparison of industry roles and provides the basis for skills gap analysis via the Nuclear Skills Passport (NS4P). Job Contexts are competency statements for specific roles; they provide a list of the competences under four headings: Technical Competence, Business Improvement, Compliance and Functional & Behavioural Skills with linkage to the relevant training solutions. The competence statements are derived either from NOS or by consultation with an expert industry group and therefore reflect the nuclear industry’s Systematic Approach to Training (SAT).
They allow individuals or organisations to identify the minimum level of competency for a role. The training solutions to which the competence statements are linked are qualifications, recognised training courses, Training Standards or Training Programme Guidelines. As training solutions are listed within the body of the Job Context they offer guidance and allow the Job Context to
be used as a benchmark when developing role profiles or to establish an individual’s development plan.
