National Occupational Standards for Publishing

Skillset is updating the National Occupational Standards for Publishing to include journals and the latest digital developments and they want to know what you think.

This important project comes at a critical time for the industry, when digital developments provide both threats and opportunities. As a result, ALPSP is fully supporting the project and we urge all members to take part.

Skillset are organising a series of focus groups
for publishing professionals to discuss and develop the standards:

  • London, Tuesday 13th September, 10:00 - 12:00
  • London, Wednesday 21st September, 14:00 - 16:00
  • Edinburgh, Wednesday 21st September, 13:00 - 15:00

  • Cardiff, Wednesday 28th September, 11:00 - 13:00
  • Oxford, Thursday 29th September, 10:30 - 12:30
Visit the Skillset blog to register.

If you can't get to one of the focus groups, you can also contribute through telephone interview or by completing a questionnaire please contact Debbie Warren (email) no later than Wednesday 7 September.
