Data and Labour Market Information

The Employers’ Skills and Education Board have established a Data and Labour Market Steering Group. The steering group involves all our local colleges, local authorities, the University of Chester, Jobcentre Plus, The Youth Federation, National Careers Service and other local partners who work together to develop data and labour market intelligence that will inform the development of the curriculum across Cheshire and Warrington.

The Terms of Reference of the Data and Labour Market Steering Group can be found here.

The data and LMI is being used to inform the strategic priorities of the Employers’ Skills and Education Board, The Pledge, Digital Skills Partnership and our £5 million capital investments. The first phase of work involved the development of reports on the following.
