Using Kudos in a successful sixth form college

Xaverian College is dedicated to the development of the whole person, providing excellent educational opportunities for young people in and around Manchester.

Careers Advisor, Kenny Nolan, uses Kudos with 16 – 19 year olds from level 1 – 3 abilities.

Kenny said,

‘During their first term in college, we encourage students to think about career ideas, pathways and options. Students with career ideas early on in their studies tend to perform better at exam time and tend to research entry requirements for courses  which can help with their future plans and preparation.’

‘The design of Kudos is appealing to young people and user friendly. The transparency of matching is very clear, especially within the Features of Work.’

‘The students also like the ability to search their own career ideas and check the suitably of their selections. There is so much information on careers and career areas; every sector is represented and students can use this if they like the idea of working in a particular sector but are not sure what can be done within that area.’

‘By using Kudos, our students are able to reflect on their attitudes towards aspects of work and use this to decide which career path they would like to pursue.’

‘Kudos helps Xaverian College to deliver impartial careers guidance very well. It is very clear that the careers suggested for students via the quiz are based on  individual responses and with the labour market information, students have an insight into career competitiveness.’

‘As an advisor, I particularly like the MyFuture feature – the quiz gets students to really think carefully about various aspects of employment.’
