CVs and covering letters

When applying for an apprenticeship or a job, you will almost certainly need a CV and a covering letter.

Students will complete a CV writing workshop in Year 11 as part of Careers Day. They will be given a template CV to edit with their own details and will finish the day with a quality CV which they will be able to add to throughout their journey through school and beyond. Students in NUSA Sixth Form will receive Personal Statement and CV writing support throughout their UCAS/Employment application process.
