Local Area Summary Report

New product for 2015/16 academic year.


Key data about skills supply and demand in your local area

For 2015/16 we have introduced a new updated product in response to requests from many of our customers.

The Local Area Summary Report brings together key findings from our market intelligence and LMI analysis into an easy to read and highly graphical PowerPoint pack. The report shows key statistics about skills supply and skills demand in your local area and highlights the contribution that your college is making in priority sectors. Skills information is analysed by subject area, funding stream, geographical area and level of study. Outputs are in the form of easy to read tables, charts and maps. The report should be particularly useful for Governing Bodies and Senior Management Teams who wish to evaluate the contribution made by their college to the local economy and community.

Significant discounts are available for colleges who already subscribe to the Vector market intelligence tool.
