Module 6 helps you to understand what a CV is, when you need one and what information to include. You can have a go at writing your first CV.
Work your way through the Writing your first CV Module, completing the activity. To get the most out of this module, we suggest that you complete the Planit Portfolio interactive tool. However, if you would prefer, you can complete the activity on paper first.
If you are a teacher or trainer, view the accompanying module notes, which include aims, outcomes and which career management skills and senior phase criteria the module meets.
If completing this as a paper-based exercise, print out Activity 1 Sample CV as well as the content before delivering it.
