"Every student and their parents, should have access to good quality information about future study options and labour market opportunities. They will need the support of an informed adviser to make the best use of available information."

Labour Market Information provides the knowledge and understanding of how the labour market functions and is crucial for making sense of changing economic circumstances. Understanding the local labour market, helps students to achieve their career goals, by seeing the big picture. Macmillan Academy encourages each student to:

  1. Become aware that there are trends in local and national labour markets.
  2. Understanding that trends in technology and science have implications for career planning.
  3. Exploring the relationship between career choice, their community and society expectations.
  4. Considering entrepreneurial and self employment as a career pathway.
