What is labour market information (LMI)?
Wage rates, job availability, skills gaps, unemployment rates, together with reports from professional bodies and economic summaries from think tanks, plus an array of other resources make up the wealth of knowledge we have provided under the banner of LMI.
The understanding and application of LMI is a core part of a careers professional’s competencies and is central to ensuring that young people are equipped with the information needed to make well informed realistic decisions.
LMI is information relating to work and employment. Employment areas are grouped as employment sectors. Employment sectors are jobs and careers that are related to the given sector, and may be related to each other.
Much of the information in this section of Career Point has been provided by New Economy, Greater Manchester's Policy and Research Team.
This area of the virtual environment is the successor to Work Matters in Greater Manchester.
