Writing a CV

Writitng a CV: 1 morning for 1-2 employees

All students at the UTC are expected to practise CV writing. This session will enable them to improve areas of their CVs, or to add areas that they had not included previously. Many companies have different views if the perfect CV. We would ask that you work with a format that your organisation would value. Format for this session is as follows:

  • Introduction by teacher
  • Industry partner gives an introduction, explaining the need for a comprehensive CV that details all relevant experience and information that might be of value to you
  • Industry partner shows students some examples of a well-crafted CV (and perhaps a bad one as well)
  • Industry partner instructs the students to open their digital CV in Word, and to review their current draft against the information you have provided them. Their objective is to make improvements wherever possible
  • Whilst the students are undertaking this activity, the industry partner should circulate from student to student, reviewing their draft, and providing constructive feedback and guidance for each student
  • At the end of the session, the industry partner should provide a summary feedback to the student group, encouraging them to review their CV and update it regularly to include any employer-related activity they undertake at the UTC
