LMI for All to move to Department for Education
Since the last post on the future of LMI for All, Robert Halfon (Minster of State for Education) provided a statement to parliament on the future of UKCES. He confirmed that LMI for All will now move to the Department for Education following the reorganisation of the Department for Business Innovation and Skills. We expect the transfer to take place in September.
To cover the period of the transfer and beyond, Warwick Institute for Employment Research (IER) and its partners have been reappointed to provide the LMI for All service. In the year ahead, the existing service will be developed in a number of ways including, improved infrastructure and reliability, new engagement and dissemination activities, and a redeveloped ‘Careerometer’ widget. Data in the API will continue to be refreshed when updates are available. DfE will also take stock of the project and consider its next phase of development.
Please keep an eye on the website and twitter feed for information. In the meantime you can still contact us at LMIforAll.firstname.lastname@example.org.
