The Gatsby Foundation supported IER with this research which aimed to explore the supply of labour market information (LMI) and labour market intelligence (LMI+) in England, to understand sources and identify gaps in both underlying data sources and the provision or dissemination of information. The study focused on LMI and LMI+ aimed at intermediaries (i.e., careers education professionals, educators, parents/carers) and young people at secondary school and in further education, with a focus on technician careers. This desk based study provided a comprehensive overview of the LMI landscape in England and mapped its components. An LMI and LMI+ assessment matrix was also developed and used to evidence and assess sources. The review was extended to include interviews with LMI and LMI+ suppliers and experts from the UK and internationally.
