Labour Market Information
Understanding jobs in your local area means that you can make the right choices
What is Labour Market Information (LMI)?
LMI effectively describes the world of work – ranging from descriptions of different careers, their entry routes, promotional prospects, salaries paid, skills and qualifications needed, etc. Crucially for young people, LMI also covers future demand – what kinds of jobs will be in demand after leaving school and what kinds of skills will be needed?
What information does it include?
- Skills, career pathways and progression routes in the local labour market
- Qualifications, training and entry requirements
- Employment sectors, employers, jobs, salaries and employment trends
- Job demands and working life
- Financial planning
We encourage our parents to access and use the information about labour markets and future study options to support their children.
