Using Labour Market Intelligence: Resources developed by other programmes

The Marchmont Observatory, who led the HE STEM Project Progressing from labour market intelligence to HE level provision that is well-supported by employers, have selected some key resources on the process of employer engagement from a range of other relevant funded programmes for inclusion on our website. These are resources that are likely to be of use to FE and HE practitioners who are involved in the process of employer engagement within their own institutions.

JISC: Shared Aggregation of Labout Market Information Project (SALAMI)

The SALAMI project used new technologies to develop user-focused Shared Web Services linking Labour Market Information (LMI) with other public data. The concept was to enable organisations to link their own information with these web services in order to provide a rich and joined-up picture of LMI for their own purposes. The project was led by the University of Nottingham’s Centre for International e-Portfolio Development and completed on July 2011.

SALAMI Project Case Study

The Institute for Employment Studies: LMI Guide

The Institute for Employment Studies (IES) was established in 1969 to be an independent, national centre of expertise on productivity, manpower planning and labour market change. Since that time it has become one of the UK’s leading independent centre for research and evidence-based consultancy in employment, labour market and human resource policy and practice. It is not-for-profit, its activities being funded through research and consultancy commissions, and from its corporate membership programme.

Labour Market Intelligence: A Guide, produced by the IES in 2000, was designed to help those within HEIs who use, or would like to use, labour market information (LMI) in planning activity. It is of particular use to those involved in strategic, operational, business or course planning, at any level.

UK Commission for Employment and Skills: Report

The UK Commission for Employment and Skills (UKCES) is a Non-Departmental Public Body providing strategic leadership on skills and employment issues in the UK.

The UKCES guide, Labour Market Information (LMI), Information Communications and Technologies (ICT) and Information, Advice and Guidance (IAG) The way forward? was commissioned by the UK Commission for Employment and Skills in 2010. It analysed the interaction, roles and potential of three topics: the use and availability of Labour Market Information; the type and extent of ICT usage in relation to careers choices; and the availability, quality and usage of careers Information, Advice and Guidance.
