Labour Market Information

As part of a project between Proskills and Skillset, Proskills have developed a report which includes labour market information on 9 industries that Proskills represents at the time of writing the report.

The report provides high quality, robust, sector specific labour marker information to support the adult advancement and careers service.

For each industry the report outlines information on careers available, new emerging jobs, transferability of skills career paths and opportunities for progression. There is information on pay scales, how to enter the industry and what qualifications are available.

The report also shows trends in the industry, where skills gaps lie, what influences the recession has had and the future of the industry in terms of a green agenda and job requirements
