Prospects has launched Luminate, an online resource for school leaver, student and graduate labour market information.
Providing a fresh voice for the sector, it is aimed at careers advisers, recruiters, employers and anyone interested in labour market information.
Luminate will dissect the latest research, making it easier to apply and use in a business and recruitment context. It will also feature advice, views and trends. For more in depth analysis, special reports will be available to download, such as the annual What do graduates do?
The online platform will be supported by a series of events throughout the year, bringing readers face-to-face with the experts.
The first event will take place in London on 22 March. Keynote speaker and consultant Femi Bola will discuss diversity in the workplace, an area she was awarded an MBE for services to in 2012. Femi spent eight years as the director of employability at the University of East London and has more than 20 years' experience of developing and delivering training and development solutions for organisations, students, graduates and employees.
Femi will be joined by experts from the Institute of Student Employers, Babcock International, Pink Squid and the Employability Service of London South Bank University, who will debate the use of labour market information in business and recruitment.
Sarah Brookes, marketing director at Prospects said: 'For nearly 50 years we have supported employers, recruiters and careers services with data, trends and advice. Luminate takes this provision to the next level, becoming the new home for school leaver and student and graduate labour market information.
'As well as being an indispensable resource, it will become our primary repository for reports and research. Luminate will give the sector a new digital space to debate and disseminate.'
Luminate is inviting contributions. For more information visit luminate.prospects.ac.uk
