Labour Market Information 

What is LMI?

Labour Market Information (LMI) is the name for facts and figures about jobs and employment. The information is used to give an overall picture of the past, present and future of work. Labour Market information (LMI) shows what sorts of employment opportunities exist in your area and which sectors are growing. This information can help students decide on which career path to take and where to get information. By understanding LMI students will be able to find out if there are many opportunities in their chosen field of work.

How can LMI help young people with career decisions?

LMI will give young people information about:
• What a job involves on a day-to-day basis
• Which jobs are growing or declining – for example, it is predicted that the amount of nurses will rise, but the amount of printers will fall
• What qualifications or skills might be needed to do a job
• How much someone might earn
• How a person’s interests and skills are relevant to particular jobs
• What jobs there are in the region

The local economic area is known as The Marches and covers Herefordshire, Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin.
