Further Education

Key benefits for further education colleges and training providers

Labour Insight is used by FE Colleges to support their overall business strategy and bid development, curriculum planning, employer engagement activities and apprenticeship development.

Real time job vacancy data

Labour Insight allows users to analyse job vacancy data and break it down by occupation, skills, employers and more.  Labour Insight includes skills clusters which identify new and emerging markets.

Employer engagement development

Identify actively hiring employers locally – see what skills and experience they are looking for, and what the trends are locally, nationally, historically and currently.

Apprenticeships

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

Provide an evidence base that truly reflects the demands of your local area.  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.

Curriculum planning

Use real-time LMI to adapt your course offering to meet the exact skills demand of local employers and industry, by supplementing your curriculum with the skills needs of local employers so your students are well equipped to succeed in the local job market.  Labour Insight can identify specialist skills and requirements that are not highlighted in more traditional data sources.

Marketing and student recruitment

Use local LMI to recruit and inspire new students.  Understanding the local labour market will help them choose the right course.

Careers advice

Provide evidence based careers advice to motivate learners and increase retention rates.

“Labour Insight is used extensively by the marketing team in our LMI activity which includes providing insight to strategy, curriculum planning and IAG. I find Labour Insight provides a clarity and enhances government-based statistics. It is a vital part of our suite of labour market tools that provide detailed intelligence.”
