Labour Market Intelligence

Skills Development Scotland's Labour Market Information and Intelligence (LMI) reports and resources are designed around the requirements of our colleagues. 

Our aim is to make LMI work for Skills Development Scotland (SDS) - we are an internal resource for SDS. All our LMI activities are driven by the requirements of our colleagues. We are happy to make the LMI material regularly provided for SDS staff available in the public domain. If you're looking for a wider range of material, then you should visit Scotland's LMI Portal.

Access sectoral labour market information from the Sector Skills Councils and the latest developments in the Scottish Government's growth sectors.
