Labour Market Information
LMI Explained

LMI stands for Labour Market Information. LMI is available at local, regional, national and even international level.

A generally accepted definition of LMI is:

‘Any information about the structure and working of a labour market, and any factors likely to influence the structure and working of that market, including: jobs available, people to do those jobs and changes in the business environment

Put simply, there are 3 main parts to labour market information:

  • The Demand Side (the jobs available)
  • The Supply Side (people to do the jobs available)
  • Forces affecting the labour market (e.g. legislation)

Work Experience

As part of the work related learning programme at the academy all Year 10 students will the take part in a week’s “Work Experience” placement. The allocated week runs in July and students are expected to work 5 days – including a Saturday if the company closes during the week.  Students are introduced to this during October and are encouraged and supported to seek out their own placement to gain maximum benefit. Limited placement places are offered through Humber EBP and these are usually available from February. Health & Safety checks are carried out by the Humber EBP service to ensure suitability. Self-canvassed forms need to be completed by the person responsible at the placement and by parents at the earliest opportunity and returned to the front office at the academy. Students may benefit from such placements by securing a good reference, a part time job or the offer of an apprenticeship on leaving school.
