Labour Market Information 

Labour Market Information (LMI), describes statistical data regarding jobs, salaries, employers and employees, sectors, current employment conditions and future trends. The following LMI guide has a wealth of information available to you.  

The attached Post 16 guide is a great resource to help you support your child in planning their future. The attached parents and carers apprenticeship guide may also be helpful.
