Underpinning CIAG with an Evidence Base: Information into Intelligence (Free Webinar)

Monday 23rd April 2018 14:00 - 15:00

Overview

The constantly changing nature of the labour market means that access to Labour Market Information (LMI) is essential for careers and guidance staff, to deliver relevant and up-to-date careers information and guidance. However, this LMI may only provide context; arguably, the greater value lies in developing this information into Labour Market Intelligence to help careers staff and advisers support people into – and through - the world of work.

This webinar will cover an introduction to Labour Market Information (LMI) before going on to explore the relationship/importance of LMI to Careers Information Advice and Guidance (CIAG), outlining the importance of LMI to career CIAG staff.  

This session will then consider the ‘problem’ of how to create a user-friendly resource for careers/CIAG staff (i.e. turning Labour Market Information into Intelligence), how to and outline the development of Skills Development Scotland’s Local Labour Market Information site as an example of a ‘solution’ to this problem.”

Webinar presenters: Andrew Docherty and Jennifer Queen
