Workshop: Making effective use of labour market data to support graduate careers and employability


This one day workshop will look at how careers services can be more effective in their use of labour market data. 

The provision of high quality labour market information lies at the core of effective careers and employability education, and yet many professionals delivering such services admit that they struggle to find and use up to date information or to know what to do with it when they find it. 

This workshop will explore what sources of labour market data are available to careers services, how to access and analyse this data and how to use this data to make effective interventions. The workshop will explore HESA data, look at data available from the Office for National Statistics and other government sources, take a deep dive into data held by the Institute of Student Employers and explore what other data is out there on the internet. It will also look at how data can be effectively deployed in guidance sessions, employability workshops, in the curriculum and via e-learning, social media and the web. The key focus of the workshop will be using labour market data in a way that will actually make a difference to the career decisions and career management of students. 


By the end of the workshop participants will have:

engaged with a wide range of sources of labour market information that are freely available to ISE members;
mastered simple analytical techniques that allow us to ask more complex questions of data and combine data effectively;
learnt how to present data effectively on paper and on PowerPoint;
identified a range of models for including labour market data in graduate careers and employability education.



The workshop will be run by Professor Tristram Hooley, the Chief Research Officer of the Institute of Student Employers (ISE). Professor Hooley is a leading expert in careers and employability and an experienced user of labour market data. He is the author of seven books including The Graduate Career Handbook and the lead researcher and writer of the ISE’s annual surveys. His research looks at careers, employability, the graduate labour market and social justice. He also writes the Adventures in Career Development blog at
