One of the most innovative users of our data is Todd Oldham, Vice President of Economic and Workforce Development at Monroe Community College in Rochester, New York. The work he and his team have done to understand middle-skill labour demand and take action to help regional employers is thorough and impressive. Monroe has a strong track record of investing in grants management, economic and workforce development, and marketing, and the investment has paid off in the form of developing programs that are attuned to labour market needs, winning grants that support those programs, and becoming a workforce development leader in the Finger Lakes region (our Head of FE, Doug Heckman covered some of these successes in his presentation at our 2016 annual conference).
Yet according to Oldham, much of his team’s innovation and successes have come about by simply beginning with a clear sense of what they wanted to understand and accomplish with Labour Market Intelligence (LMI), and by asking good questions which they can then delve into the data to get answers.
Our US team recently invited Oldham to host a webinar to discuss how he uses LMI to inform educational program decisions and bolster grant narrative. This webinar was a big success, with a lot of people signing up, and it’s also something we think clients in the UK would benefit from seeing. You can download a PDF of his slides here, or you can watch the webinar below:
