Title: Understanding the System: Labor Market Assessments

Date & Time: Wednesday, November 4, 2015. 10:15am-11:15am

Summary: The labor market assessment (LMA) framework starts with a series of questions that need answers, forming the basis for an assessment. The questions fall into one of five buckets. These help guide you to tools to answer your questions, indicate parts of the WFD system that you should be looking at, and comprise the foundational pieces of a labor market assessment framework. The six are: 1. Systems; 2. Policy; 3. Economic Context; 4. Supply of Skills 5. Demand for Skills; 6. Alignment.
