Labour Market Information
People are always asking me as to 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
