Labour Market Information (LMI) provides statistics, research and analysis about current and future economic and job trends.
It looks at the demand, supply and other factors including economic and political changes to inform and support career and business planning decisions. It is gathered and used locally, regionally, nationally and at international level.
The importance of LMI to you and your students
Keeping up to date with what’s happening in the labour market is important for anyone making career related decisions. LMI should play a key role in any careers department. You and your students should be aware of:
- What job opportunities are out there for them
- The jobs that will be in demand in the future
- What qualifications and skills they'll need
- How they can prepare themselves for an ever changing job market
