Planning an effective CV

Submitted by Laura Jeffrey Kiiza on Mon, 2016-09-26 12:43

Literacy: Wt/L1.1, Wt/L1.2, Wt/L2.1, Wt/L2.2, Functional English - writing

Context: Employment skills & Public services

Level: L1, L2

Resource type: Informative presentation, Sort or match cards

A couple of resources for planning a CV.

Firstly, I would check learners understand the term ‘Employability’ and, using the letters in the the word, ask learners to come up with ideas for the personal skills and qualities needed to get a job. For example – E – enthusiastic, energetic, M – motivated, multi-talented …etc. I would then move on to the PPT.

The Power Point is fairly straight forward. Work through this but stop to do the card activity (after slide 5). Laminate and cut up the card activity.
