Kudos: On a scale of 0 – 10, 10 being the best score… I would score it 9!

East Kent College is committed to developing the prosperity and wellbeing of the communities it serves. By providing high-quality education, celebrating students’ individuality and encouraging entrepreneurial spirit, the college aims to open up a world of possibilities which could lead students into their perfect career.

Barbara Verner is responsible for delivering an impartial Careers Advice and Guidance Service to prospective and currents students, parents, staff and members of the local community.

Barbara said,

‘We have been using Kudos in East Kent College for well over a year now and use the programme with all of our student groups and individuals.’

‘We find Kudos an essential tool in supporting students to pro-actively engage with their future career research.

  • We use the MyFuture ‘Like and Dislike’ feature for prospective students who do not know which course or career would best suit them
  • Also, we use the ‘Like and Dislike’ questionnaire for current students who may wish to change course or who are unsure of their progression
  • CV Builder for CV Preparation with all groups
  • Personal Statement Builder for all student groups and individuals applying through UCAS
  • Job search facility for part-time and full-time employment searches
  • General Information with all groups
  • Manager Report for Senior Management Team
  • CASCAID Manager tool for management facility’

‘My favourite features are the Personal Statement Builder, MyFuture ‘Like and Dislike’ questionnaire and the holistic and interactive nature of the design of the software.’

‘The feedback from individuals and groups has been hugely positive.  Some parents have commented that they are amazed it has not been available for their children in Year 10 and 11.’

‘The Management Report within the CASCAID Manager is very useful and was recently during an OFSTED inspection. It gave a useful picture of students’ activity using the software which reflected on the quality of our careers service.  Also, it is really helpful for establishing student groups.’

‘KUDOS is an essential part of delivering a comprehensive, student centred impartial Careers Advice and Guidance service.  It encourages pro-active research therefore, encouraging students to take ownership of their own education, learning and career planning. On a scale of 0 – 10, 10 being the best score… I would score it 9!’
