At Bishop Auckland College, the careers team ensured all students engaged with LMI by organising large scale education lessons for up to 50 students at a time. They researched high-growth industries in the North East and disseminated information to the students on different vacancies, specific roles and what different sectors might look like in the future. For example, the energy sector is going to be a key source of jobs in the future – something many students had not considered before the LMI was presented to them.
LMI should also be integrated into normal curriculum lessons. Park View school built a central database filled with people who could be brought in by staff to provide LMI for the curriculum. The database contained details of school alumni, parents and carers, contacts made through Future First and Inspiring the Future, and individuals from industry who had worked with the school in the past. The database gives them easy access to lesson resources from real people who are currently in that industry.
