Parents & Carers

Careers advice is not just for our students. As Parents/Carers you play a vital role in supporting our young people with their next steps and therefore need to be equipped with the most up to date and relevant careers and *labour market information (LMI). Having this careers knowledge will allow you to help our young people to make tough and challenging decisions about their futures.

Labour Market Information (LMI)

LMI refers to the data we have about jobs and industries that helps us understand the economy. It provides an overview of growth areas in industry and patterns relating to employment, salaries and much much more. LMI information is available at a national, regional and local level. 

Our region is home to a huge variety of businesses and organisations, which means young people have a lot of choice when it comes to their career path. So how do you know where to begin? There are certain areas of industry where the North East performs strongly, and which the North East Local Enterprise Partnership believe are likely to grow in the future, based on what we know at the moment.
