Useful Links

> Go Higher West Yorkshire – helping students access and prepare for the higher education in West Yorkshire.

> UCAS progress – find out where the local post-16 learning opportunities are. You can search by course, subject or even provider.

> Find an apprenticeship – this online search on the government pages allows you to look for current apprenticeship vacancies.

> KUDOS – Kettlethorpe pupils have access to this online career development service. 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.

Impact Measurement

We believe that pupils should be well prepared for the choices they make during their education and the choices they make in the future. We use our leavers’ destinations data to measure the impact of our careers programme.
