Useful Careers Websites
The school subscribes to a careers Information package called KUDOS. It has a Careers Quiz to generate career ideas, information about jobs, what subjects link with what careers etc.
Go to https://kudos.cascaid.co.uk/ and enter the school’s License code (you can get the license code from Mrs Thorpe or Mr Pearson) and create your own account.

If you are seriously interested in apprenticeships, please book a careers interview through your tutor. There is no ‘one place’ where all apprenticeships are advised + Lincoln is limited in the opportunities it offers. It is worth talking to the Careers Adviser before you start.
Here are some websites where you could search for vacancies:
- https://www.lagattraining.co.uk/ - A Lincoln based apprenticeship agency
You must stay in some form of education till age 18! So whilst at school you can realistically only look for part time work.
