There are a great number of sources for Labour Market Information (LMI), some of these will be sector specific and others will focus on the national picture rather than local. It is important that students use a range of LMI to gain a true understanding of opportunities available to them. Some sources of LMI can be found below alongside worksheets that have been used in local schools and can be edited.
The government’s website ‘LMI for All’ is a useful starting point and also has a Careerometer widget which you can
embed into your own school careers website. The National Careers Service’s website includes LMI on all job profiles.
Your Local Enterprise Partnership will be able to provide LMI tailored for the region you are based in. There is also a range of websites and resources listed in our Gatsby Benchmark toolkits which can be found on The Careers and Enterprise Company website.
