Labour Market Information Fact Sheets 

There are eleven factsheets in total, covering Dorset key employment sectors such as Agri-tech, hospitality, finance, and health and social care. Intended to be a useful resource for students exploring their future career options, they provide information about key employers, example careers, skills required, expected earnings and future demand.

The fact sheets are the first step in achieving new guidelines set out in the government’s new Careers Strategy, which states that every student and their parents should have access to good quality information about future study options and labour market opportunities.

If you would like to know more, or get involved with the work of the Dorset Careers Hub, please contact our Careers Hub lead, Helen Stevenson.
