New Kudos aims to encourage, excite and inspire young people to start exploring their future options.
It is extremely important for young people to make informed and inspired decisions about their future. New Kudos aims to ensure that future opportunities are not missed by providing impartial and independent career and education information, delivered to students in a variety of ways to reflect the differing ways they think about their future.
New Kudos takes 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.
‘I don’t know what career I want to do’ – classic CASCAiD matching process
For those young people who need some ideas to explore, we’ve retained the likes and dislikes questions – but we’ve improved the Qualification screen. We’ve made it obvious that Kudos needs the young person to tell it about the highest qualification they’re planning on achieving.
‘I kind of know what career I want to do’ – career groups
For those young people who have a rough idea of what they want to do or are not ready to dive into the full list of careers we have introduced over 100 career groups which include some general information, photographs and a link to the related careers.
‘I like these subjects’ – subject matching
For those young people who like (or even love!) certain subjects we’ve introduced a feature that matches their favourite subjects to careers. This means that it’s also a great tool for subject choice activities
‘I know what career I want to do’ – all careers
For those young people who know what they want to do they can now go straight to that career and quickly assess their suitability by answering the only likes and dislikes that are relevant to that career

Labour market information can help to show students which work areas and specific jobs may have strong job opportunities in the future. This information can help them make realistic and informed decisions about their future and it can also prompt questions and discussion about their future options with teachers
