Labour Market Information

Labour market information (LMI) may help students and their parents understand the job market and find out which careers, different qualifications can lead to.  We strongly advise students to look through the resources below before making GCSE and further study option choices.

Students have been encouraged to complete the careers software that the school subscribes to:  https://www.startprofile.com.  By answering a series of questions, the software guides the students to research a variety of suitable careers.  It would be useful if students spent time reviewing the software results with parents to ensure they maximise the benefits.

It is also worth spending time researching future trends in the national labour market to best future-proof your career choice.

We encourage students to have a go at the game on startprofile to find out which careers may suit them and what qualifications and skill sets they will require. 

The National Careers Service provides excellent information about a wider variety of job roles.

The National Statistics Office is the UK's largest independent producer of official statistics and the recognised national statistical institute of the UK for headline news, figures and publications.

When students think about their future options, it's important that they consider their skills and knowledge, which careers interest them and also the job availability in that sector. Visit Moving On to compare average earnings, working hours and predicted job openings.
