Labour Market Information

Labour Market Information (LMI) is a tool to; understand the skills needed for certain roles; find employment in your local area; and understand how career sectors are predicted to grow or shrink. 

LMI helps to break down data related to careers. For example; descriptions of different types of careers; entry routes into those careers; salary information; skills needed to be successful in the role; qualifications needed at different entry points for the role; etc.

Students are introduced to LMI, and how to locate and understand the different data points, in KS3. This is then built on in subsequent years, so that students can make informed decisions about their future. 

Some useful recourses for exploring LMI that parents can use with their children are located in the table below.
