Careers Software for Students

Welcome to the careers software area of the website.


Kudos and Careerscape


Kudos is a software tool which will enable you to track your progression from GCSE right through to higher education applications and beyond - contains a CV and personal statement builder too!  Click on the link above to run the programme.


Careerscape is a programme where you can research job families and see which GCSE and A Level subjects link to which areas of work.  Used in the Year 8 careers programme, it can help in choosing GCSEs.

NB For both programmes, in the "Not Signed Up Yet?" box you will be asked to enter a licence code - please ask in the Careers Department for the code if you do not already have a login.


Fun Personality Test 

A fun personality questionnaire to help you identify your skills and personality type, from a website designed for young people called The Buzz.  Take the test.

Higher Ideas

This programme can be found in the Careers section of Moodle.  It shows you the range of degree subjects which different A Levels can lead to.  There is also a section where you can research your own career ideas.
