Labour Insight for Higher Education

Key benefits for use within education settings


Employer engagement

Local employer hiring activity is used to identify potential partners with which to cultivate work placements, Apprenticeships, research, training etc – and to identify emerging industries to strengthen links with.


Use the skills data to build comprehensive apprenticeship programmes that are attractive to both employers and students.  Your business development team will be able to target employers advertising for entry-level positions, in order to promote your apprenticeship programmes.

Business planning and bid development

Use market insight as evidence to support funding bids, and operational planning. Labour Insight helps you better understand the difference between local, regional and national labour and skills demand. Being able to highlight why you are unique to other providers will deliver better planning and bid success.

Programme planning & alignment

Prioritise the skills that are in greatest demand locally, regionally or nationally.  Identify growth in emerging fields, that can’t be tracked using traditional data sources.

Marketing and recruitment

Marketing should be able to show that programmes are relevant and meet current demand. Job vacancy and employer data can be used to promote courses to prospective students, illustrating likelihood of finding work within specific sectors, and what level of pay they can expect to earn after graduating.

Evidence based careers advice

Provide evidence-based careers advice to motivate students and increase retention rates; build careers packages for graduates (including risk of automation), and produce information on the graduate opportunities in your area.

Feedback from the team is that this is taking labour market intelligence to a whole new level
