What is Kudos?

Kudos is an impartial online careers guidance and information program that helps young people plan their future and make informed decisions.

Kudos is ideal for 13-19 year olds.  It provides young people a personalised experience based on their interests and educational aspirations to suggest suitable careers. They can explore these suggestions or look at their own career ideas; they can then see how well matched they are to them.  A useful ‘Dashboard’ feature provides a centralised point for accessing all of the program’s features.

Guidance is available in each section to help the user get the most out of their Kudos experience. They can consider their study and training options and record subjects that are studying or are planning to study.

Students can add careers and subjects to their own personal Action Plan, where they can set goals and target dates. Up-to-date and accurate detailed information is provided on over 700 different careers (covering over 1,800 job titles). A Notes feature allows students to add their own notes to careers they are interested in or they add them to their favourites list. Kudos is an inspirational careers tool that inspires young people with their future choices.

Kudos has helped millions of young people with their career decisions over the last 20 years; it continues to be the most popular careers guidance tool.

Kudos can also be used as part of the ASDAN Careers and Experiencing Work Short Course which provides students with a structured programme to support the delivery of careers and work-related education.
