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 delivering this module to young people, you can use the PowerPoint presentation, which includes notes, activities, tasks/discussion points and estimated timings. There are also teacher/trainer notes, which outlines delivery requirements, aims, outcomes, career management skills and senior phase criteria.
If you are completing this as a paper-based exercise, download and print Activity 1 Sample CV as well as the content before delivering the module.
