Help support students to develop their CV and cover letter. By meeting with a real-life professional, students can ask questions and further their understanding of what is required and what is seen as best practice in the world of work.

CV workshops

CV workshops contribute to an overall improvement in students' CVs and cover letters, ultimately increasing their chances of securing future employment, apprenticeships or further study.

A CV workshop puts this into a real-life context and provides young people with vital skills to be successful in the world of work.

As an employer, your support is important as it gives Doncaster young people an insight into what local employers are looking for whilst reinforcing the importance of having a strong CV. In addition to this, it also helps businesses to understand the motivations of young people, and offers career aspirations through an insight into the world of work.

How your business can prepare

You aren’t expected to bring CV templates with you as the school should provide these materials. However, if you wanted to bring along some examples of good practice they may be helpful. Talking to the educators before the event starts is one of the best ways to make sure that you are fully prepared.
