Subject Insight

The online dashboard that helps university market insight teams assess regional labour market and skills demand by subject area - quickly and efficiently.

Lightcast Subject Insight

How does it work?

Users enter a subject area or CAH code and can immediately access critical data on associated occupations, qualifiers (representing new graduate supply into the workforce), in-demand skills and job titles, and regional employers, as well as subject areas with overlapping employment outcomes. All of this is exportable to Word and Excel, or as a presentation-ready PDF.

How can it help?

Market Insight teams who don’t have the time or resources to engage in deep skills and labour market analyses themselves can use Lightcast Subject Insight to quickly generate reports to inform a number of activities, including course reviews, portfolio planning and business cases, as well as support careers advice and employer engagement activities.
