Labour Insight for Higher Education
The benefits for universities
Labour market insight is used extensively by Universities looking to identify emerging skills, and plan for future requirements.
Labour Insight data enables you to 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 Promoting graduate outcomes
Universities should be able to show that the courses they are offering are relevant to 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.
Local employer hiring activity is used to identify potential partners with which to cultivate work placements, Higher Apprenticeships, research, training etc – and to identify emerging industries to strengthen links with.
It’s important to provide an evidence base that is current. Quality LMI enables Universities to understand the differences between local, regional and national labour market demands, as well as being able to highlight the uniqueness of the institution, enabling better strategic planning and successful funding bid applications.
“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.”
