Advice and guidance

Eyes on the Prize at Anglia Ruskin University

Due to the lockdown situation we were unable to attend this event in January as we would do normally and a “live” virtual event was planned for January 2021 which sadly could not take place as students were not at school. We will be using our PHSEE lessons over the coming weeks to watch a recorded version of this event and students will complete activities linked to their options as part of this.

KUDOS online careers and options support package

  • You will have received an e-mail from CASCAID with Your Kudos log in details.
  • https://kudos.cascaid.co.uk/
  • Kudos will give you all the information you need to make important decisions about future careers and what subjects, courses and training you can do to reach your career destination.
  • If you are unsure of what careers you might be interested in, Kudos can give ideas based on what you like and dislike. You can also discover what careers your subjects can lead to.
  • Packed with information on what employers are looking for, what you can earn and what qualifications you’ll need, Kudos is your passport to exploring your future. 


PHSEE Lessons

In Year 7 and 8 there were modules on careers and over the coming weeks students will have a series of lessons based in a computer room of the library working with their PHSEE teacher and our careers advisor investigating careers and the options process. They will use the KUDOS website and also other sources of information.

Form time curriculum

Each week on a Thursday students have learnt about a new career – this started way back in Year 7 and has continued through Year 8 and 9.

The careers are explored using the BBC Bitesize and i-Could websites, which use inspirational videos, case studies and labour market information to inform students and promote discussion.
