What can you do with LMI for All?

Ever wondered what you can do with LMI for All, how to go about using it and how best to get started? Why not begin by having a look at some  case studies on how others have used this resource to design and create new apps and web interfaces. This includes ways of identifying relevant audiences, using the API to integrate (or ‘mash’) LMI for All data with your own data.

For inspiration, here are four organisations keen to share their LMI for All experience.

  • icould was an early adopter of LMI for All. Their story of using LMI for All describes how they have used and visualised data alongside their careers videos.
  • The story from Prospects explains how they went about designing and developing an app, ‘Help Build London’, to raise awareness of the construction sector in London.
  • The Skills Match London website was developed by London Councils and MIME Consulting. The story of its development describes how LMI for All data is presented alongside local data to provide a visualisation of skills gaps and future trends.
  • The story from Kore Education Systems describes how they are creating KareerHub using data from LMI for All and the Northern Ireland Skills Barometer.

If you are inspired and want to know more, the LMI for All website also provides technical support and guidance on how to query the database, use the API, get an API key and the structure of the LMI for All data.

Finally, why not share your LMI for All experience with us. Contact: Sally-Anne Barnes, LMIforAll.dfe@education.gov.uk

LMI for All symposium – 1 December 2016, London

As LMI for All is becoming embedded in careers guidance and education practice, innovative and creative approaches to making data accessible and available to target groups of users are emerging. A half day symposium will be held on 1 December to showcase how LMI is being used; to share best practice; and promote new developments to the service, which can benefit current and future users. There will be presentations from the Department for Education, current adopters of LMI for All and the LMI for All team. In the current context of government priorities of Brexit, social mobility and productivity, LMI for All is more important than ever to help deliver those three priorities.

The symposium is free to attend, but places are limited so please register with Lynne Marston. Places will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis. The symposium will run from 10.15am-2pm, with registration from 9.45am.

If you are unable to attend the symposium, we are running a number of webinars in early 2017 – register your interest and we will be in touch.
