Labour market Information

When considering future career options it’s important to have a good understanding of the employment prospects within that industry, ie. is it a growing or declining sector?

Careerometer can be used to explore and compare key information about occupations, help you learn about different occupations and identify potential careers.

It provides access to a selection of UK headline data relating to pay, weekly hours of work and future employment prospects for different occupations, as well as description of the occupation.

Simply type in the title of the job you are interested in and the widget provides a series of options from which you can select the most relevant to you. You can then look up another two occupations and compare. You can also select ‘display the UK average’ and compare the information with the occupation you have selected.

Our approach to careers education

By working in partnership with external agencies, businesses and members of our community we will provide accurate and focussed careers information, advice and guidance tailored to the individual needs of our students, and thereby enable all of our students to make informed choices about their career pathways. 

All students are entitled to a careers programme that helps them access information and guidance about higher education, training and employment opportunities, as well as developing their personal and enterprise skills to improve their employability.

Students will hear from a range of local providers about the opportunities they offer, including technical education and apprenticeships – through options events, assemblies and group discussions and taster events.

They will benefit from a curriculum rich in information about careers and the world of work - and one which challenges stereotypes and discrimination, and promotes equality and diversity in training and in the workplace.
