Labour Market Information

People are always asking me why the labour market information is a necessary requirement...

Well, sources say that access to up-to-date career and labour market information is important for social mobility. Information about pay, numbers of vacancies and alumni’s successful transitions helps to connect students to a different future.

Students with high aspirations often lack the knowledge to put their plans into action. Providing detailed information about progression routes, relevant courses and employers and useful networks strengthens their capacity to make effective choices and transitions.

Students, parents and teachers need to be updated about new and developing routes and pathways, such as technical levels in occupational areas and the continued expansion of apprenticeships.

Students need strong digital skills to make good use of online information about career exploration, making applications, self-presentation and professional networking.

Other websites that can help in understanding local labour market information are Data Plymouth and also there is Career Pilot LMI for our area.

Further to this, Career and Labour Market Information (LMI) includes information on:

  • Skills, career pathways and progression routes in the local labour market
  • Job applications and interviews
  • Educational institutions, courses, qualifications, entry requirements and costs
  • Professional bodies
  • Employment sectors, employers, jobs, salaries and employment trends
  • Jobs, training and apprenticeships
  • Job demands and working life
  • Financial planning.

Enclosed below is the Careerometer LMI button, please use this to gain further insights into the market areas and job roles, as this provides up to date information on jobs and market sectors. I have placed a couple of buttons here as you may well wish to look at and compare roles too.
