UKCES’s LMI for All moves to BIS

The UK Commission for Employment and Skills’ (UKCES) LMI for All online data portal will continue to operate under the management of the Department for Business Innovation and Skills (BIS).

UKCES has announced that the running of their LMI (Labour Market Information) for All tool, which gives easy access to labour market data, will be transferred to BIS. This transfer will take place over the next year and allow LMI for All to remain after funding for UKCES is withdrawn.

Peter Glover, Project Manager for LMI for All, said:

“We intend to fulfill our existing plans around data development and refreshment as set out on the LMI for All website.  We will also endeavour to ensure that there is continuity of service throughout the transition period.”

LMI for All is a tool which brings together existing sources of high quality, reliable labour market information. It is used by employers, career service providers and individuals to access data which forms the basis of careers advice and business decisions.

It was announced funding would be withdraw from UKCES in the Autumn Statement last year. This means any continuing UKCES products or services will have to be transferred elsewhere.

Until further notice the project will be contactable via LMIforAll.dfe@education.gov.uk.
