As part of the cross-college tutorial programme, students have the opportunity to engage in both careers and higher education based tutorials. The College also updates and maintains the libraries information about a wide range of subject areas and careers opportunities.

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/#/

For any questions about Kudos Ad accounts, please liaise with the course tutor, or alternatively, contact the Student HUB’s Learner Progression Advisor Gail Kilminster on 01432 365 382; email kilminsterg@hlcollege.ac.uk

Employer Engagement

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 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.
