Literacy: Plan, compose and draft, Organise and present text structure, Functional English - writing

Context: Catering Food Nutrition, Employment skills & Public services, Leisure Travel Tourism

Level: L1, L2

Resource type: ICT task sheet, Worksheet or assignment, Writing prompts

This is a resource that was designed for use in a computer classroom. It allows learners to research what is needed in a cover letter to find employment. For this resource to work most successfully I would advise that learners carry out the ‘research’ stage (Tasks 1 & 2) of the lesson in pairs or small groups.

I have provided a website (created with Wordpress.com) with links to a sample covering letter (catering sector), general advice on writing covering letters for job applications, and further links to job vacancies in the Travel and Tourism sector.

The resource could easily be adapted to other sectors by providing links to different vacancies.

Physical format:
