Labour market intelligence, same or different? Adult clients and LMI post Covid-19 (Expert Training Online)

The current labour market is looking considerably different to how it looked at the beginning of the year. This two-hour interactive Masterclass aims to update careers advisers and career coaches working with adults on what the current UK labour market looks like and how different it might look as we come out of the current pandemic situation. With a particular focus on those working with adults, it will highlight areas of understanding as well as useful LMI resources for both advisers and clients to use themselves. The session will take a candid look at the impact of Covid-19 on the labour market – the sectors and groups of people that are likely to be the hardest hit – and whether the key messages are essentially the same or need reviewing.
