Gaining access to the LMI content directly from the SDS website was seen as very
positive and highlights the importance placed on this tool by SDS management
Loads of really useful info in there. Definitely worth having dedicated members of staff
working on LMI …. Will definitely use it in future.
An excellent LMI resource for SDS staff. Already being promoted to our partners –
schools, community partnerships etc. A wealth of materials to use in discussion with
clients of all ages and stages.
