Labour market intelligence, same or different? The career development professional 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 careers leaders 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 young people approaching the end of school, sixth form or college, it will highlight areas of understanding as well as useful LMI resources for both careers professionals and young people themselves. The session will also 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 for young people are essentially the same or need reviewing.
