Kudos AD

All students are required to hold a Kudos AD account which will provide them the information they need to make important decisions about future careers and what subjects, courses and training they need to do in order to reach their career destination. Student accounts are coordinated by the course tutor who provides the required licence code. Link to Kudos Ad login page: https://ad.cascaid.co.uk/#/

The College provides opportunities for students to have access to employers in Herefordshire, Shropshire and the surrounding areas by having tutors invite employers and relevant speakers into curriculum based lessons, and by students attending events such as “Meet Your Future”, an event coordinated by Herefordshire, Ludlow & North Shropshire College, Hereford Sixth Form College, and Hereford College of Arts. “Meet Your Future” is an opportunity for students to meet a variety of local and national industry professionals representing businesses, organisations and training providers.
