Local Labour Market

          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, A Level and Post 18 option choices.

Students have been encouraged to complete the online activity using Startprofile and Higher Ideas, by asking a number 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.

We encourage students to have a go at the program Higher Ideas 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.

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 .
