Course description

When we apply for a new job, we are often asked for a CV and covering letter. This is a chance for us to make a good first impression. If you don’t currently have a CV or feel as though the one you have needs re-working, join us on this course to find out how you can improve your chances of success in the job market.

Course content

On this course we will work independently and in groups to focus upon:

  • What is a CV and covering letter?
  • Thinking as the employer: what is important information?
  • How to create and adapt a covering letter
  • Creating our own CV and a model covering letter

What can this course lead to?

Other courses that compliment this one are:  

‘Interview and Presentation Skills’ and ‘Improve Your Communication Skills for Life and Work’

Useful information

You will be able to create a personalised CV and covering letter by the end of this course. If you bring details (dates and levels) of your past work experience, qualifications and or volunteering, this will be useful.
