Key Features

Four starting points Four starting points

We know young people have different levels of maturity and motivation when it comes to exploring their future options so we’ve added flexibility to Kudos by allowing them to start their journey of discovery in four different ways. Users can choose from 'MyFuture', 'Explore Subjects', 'Explore Work Areas' and 'Explore Careers' as a starting point, ensuring a truly tailored experience.

Destination support Destination support

We know that the wealth of options available to young people can make choices at 16 and 18 daunting. Kudos can help them plan their personal progression with information on Apprenticeship, further education and University options. Students can discover courses and Apprenticeships, create CVs and Personal Statements to support their applications and get feedback from their tutor/adviser.

Impartial, engaging information Impartial, engaging information

We know how important it is for every young person to explore the full range of learning, training and career options. Kudos provides students with everything they need to make an informed decision about a career, such as what’s involved, what skills employers are looking for, how to get into the career and, most importantly, how well suited the career is to them. Along with LMI, this helps to ensure that students can make fully informed decisions.

Integrated management suite Integrated management suite

We know that Kudos works best when students can discuss their results with a teacher/adviser. Kudos includes access to CASCAID Manager where teachers and advisers can track activity and get intelligence to plan interventions. Reports for each student can be downloaded to support guidance interviews, follow-up discussions and interactions with parents. In the latest version teachers/advisers can see how Kudos has helped each cohort progress.

Why choose Kudos?

Career exploration takes off with Kudos, trusted by teachers and advisers to inspire young people to explore future options.

Students will discover careers they had never thought of and can explore their own ideas as well as gain an understanding of their learning and training options.

Using impartial analysis of each students’ preferences and interests, Kudos encourages aspiration and ensures that students make truly informed decisions about what career to pursue and which pathway to take.

In the latest version of Kudos we’ve taken into account that not every young person explores their possible career directions from the same starting point.

Some haven’t started thinking about careers yet and would benefit from some suggestions, some have a rough idea of the area that they are interested in and need help refining that idea. Some want to find out where their favourite subjects could take them. Some know exactly what they want to do in later life.

The latest version of Kudos lets young people take control of planning their future by giving them more flexibility as they start to explore.

Kudos forms the basis of the careers education and advice that I deliver to Years 8 to 13. The different options correspond with their own situation so students no longer switch off whilst exploring pathways that aren’t relevant.
