Labour Market Information (LMI) is information about the current job market and future projections.  The Education Development Trust send an LMI bulletin each month, covering West Sussex.  It can include graduate destinations, average starting salaries, sector growth and skills gaps.  You are welcome to read this report below.


There are opportunities for all students to speak with Mrs Wood about career paths and college options throughout the year.

College open days and evenings begin in September and run through to January.  Ideally, college applications should be made before the Christmas holidays.  The colleges also offer open events in the Spring term.

Post-16 and other training providers maintain their own details about their courses and open days on their websites.  Davison welcomes these providers into school for events and assemblies. 

Our most local Post 16 providers are Worthing College and Northbrook MET.

You can search and set up alerts for apprenticeships on the Find an Apprenticeship website.

The iCould website is great for exploring different careers, as well as the UCAS website's section on further education
