Redland Green School is celebrating Green Careers Week 6-11 November

On Tuesday Nov 14th we have put together a Green Careers Day for Y8 and awareness of green careers for all year groups through the mentor programme.

"Green Careers Week is a fantastic new initiative launched last year. In 2023, it will take place between 6th and 11th November to provide young people with an insight into careers that specifically protect the environment and will help the UK achieve its pledge of reaching Net Zero by 2050.

Led by National Careers Week in partnership with a wide range of organisations including STEM. org.uk and the UK Space Agency, Green Careers Week promises to be an inspiring week, with plenty of information on how young people can get actively involved in careers that focus on positive environmental impact and change.''

Careers and Labour Market Information

Good quality Labour Market Information (LMI) can help a young person make career decisions and plan their future. In a rapidly changing local, UK and global jobs market young people can no longer solely rely upon the experiences and advice of their family and friends. 

Labour Market Information in relation to careers generally includes information on general employment trends, data on what jobs exists, how many and in which sectors and job types, information on the demand for skill, the supply and where current and future skills gaps and shortages might exist and what job progression opportunities are available.

The National Careers Service produce regional infographics which shows current employment trends, they do this every three months. These are easy to use resources with students.

The Careerometer uses national LMI data to provide information on how a specific job will grow. Students can compare up to three jobs:

 Below are some useful links regarding labour market information:
