Labour market information


Labour market information (LMI)

Labour Market Information (LMI) is information about the world of work in the UK. This data shows trends in who and where is hiring on a national and local scale, and conversely which career areas are in decline.

Labour Market Information (LMI) is a really helpful tool that can support your search for future careers:

If you have no idea about what career you may want, you can search for jobs locally and nationally to find areas that are in demand. Using LMI in this way will increase your career prospects generally, allowing you to pursue market trends in your employment.

If you do know what you’d like to do, LMI can help you research and plan to gain employment and succeed in that area. LMI can highlight what employment in your desired career area is like in your local area, what skills and experience are required, what pay to expect, and whether the job market is on the increase or in decline. All this information can help you plan your life to make the most of opportunities that present themselves.

Labour Market Profile

With this tool you can look at the Labour Market Profile for Dawlish, Torpoint and Yate. It is a great way to get a sense of the job market in the local area. To use this data:

Looking at ‘Employment by Occupation’ will give you an overview of the numbers of jobs in different areas and levels, both locally and nationally. Comparing the local to national figures will allow you to get a sense of the kinds of jobs that are in particular demand in your area.

You can also use the ‘view time-series’ option to see the trends of certain job areas over time. This can help you to spot trends and predict which job areas may be in demand in the coming years.

The ‘Labour Demand’ area provides you with a snapshot of the current job markets in different career areas, along with weekly earnings. Like the above, this can help you get a sense of the current situation in your area and nationally, allowing you to plan your career and life choices accordingly.

‘Qualifications’ enables you to see how employable different levels of qualification are locally and nationally.  


Skillsometer can help you discover what jobs you might like to do in the future. You will be presented with a series of statements. Select the emoji that shows how you feel about each statement. You will be given suggestions of jobs linked to what you most enjoy doing.

Skillsometer is a freely available widget provided by the LMI for All service. Skillsometer has been designed for those who are not sure what jobs they may be interested in. Thinking about skills, interests and the ways these can link to jobs can be a helpful first step in identifying possible future jobs. When taking the quiz, you are required to reflect on a number statements and decide what you  love, are not sure about or dislike. The statements are presented within six well established occupational categories (Artistic, Realistic, Investigative, Conventional, Enterprising, and Social), which are then ranked against jobs. Once you have completed the quiz, you are given a short list of job suggestions that are most likely to be suited to your own particular skills and interests. Each job can be explored, as a description is presented together with information on pay and hours. For further information on the job, and to compare with other jobs, you could then go to the Careerometer widgit.


The widget can be used to explore and compare key information about occupations to support the process of identifying potential careers.


The Careerometer widget provides access to a selection of headline data relating to pay, weekly hours of work and future employment prospects.

The data are organised by occupation: simply type in the title of the job you are interested in and the widget provides a series of options from which you can select the most relevant to you.

Feedback from last Academic year

Philosophy on feedback

As part of our approach to reflective practice Phoenix Learning and Care recognise and embrace the importance of developing a culture of continual learning and development.  We welcome feedback on our achievements and the opportunity to share best practice, however we equally understand the importance of learning from our shortfalls. As such we welcome hearing about where we may have not lived up to our high standards and we truly value the opportunity to reflect and learn about areas that we need to develop further.

Within the last academic year we have received the following number of compliments and complaints.  


If you would like to provide feedback to the school or wish to make us aware of a compliment or complaint then you can email the school direct.

Alternatively, you may contact our Operations Director for Education, Darren Jackson on:

We treat all concerns appropriately and all complaints are investigated thoroughly following our complaints policy and procedure which can be found within the Policies section of this website.  


Our proprietors Phoenix Learning and Care, welcome enquiries for placements in any of our services.

Please call us on 03330 150331 or email

We will provide an initial response to all enquiries as soon as possible, advising the options available and indicative dates of admission.

The referrals team can discuss the local offer and where appropriate, put you in contact with the respective Registered Manager or Head Teacher to discuss the practical areas in greater detail.

The Young Person and/or Student are openly encouraged to visit along with parents, guardians or Social Workers to see if the placement is suitable.

Once the placement is confirmed, we work to ensure a smooth transition including the completion of required documentation.


We work closely with our children/young people, their families and professionals to create bespoke programmes of learning for students, which are tailored to their educational and social and emotional needs, supporting them to achieve their full potential. This means that we deliver a personalised curriculum, which, where possible, acknowledges the national curriculum and meets the individual needs of our students, whilst also supporting them to meet the outcomes identified in their EHCPs.

To achieve this, every student has an individual education plan which identifies their areas of need and how we can best address them, both in terms of staff approach and the curriculum that they are provided.  Our goal is to provide access to the best academic outcomes possible as well as preparing our students for adulthood and the next stage of their education by equipping them with the skills required to achieve personal success.
