Local Labour Market Information (LMI)

The need for LMI:

  • Knowledge and understanding of how the labour market functions is at the centre of career practice
  • Crucial for making sense of changing economic circumstances

The importance of LMI in Practice

  • Careers education, information, advice and guidance need to reflect the changing labour market
  • Helps people navigate an increasingly complex labour market and make sense of the maze of opportunities
  • Contributes to an informed careers decision

The Lancashire Skills & Employment Hub have developed and created a range of evidence based reports and resources. The links to these can be found here:
