On Tuesday 28 March, the Gloucestershire & Wiltshire training provider network (GWP) and Swindon Borough Council came to UTC Swindon to deliver a CV writing session.
Year 12 and Year 13 UTC Swindon students attended the session to get advice on apprenticeships, jobs and writing effective CVs.
GWP and Swindon Borough Council began the workshop with an overview of apprenticeships, before going into further detail about how to write a good CV and apply for apprenticeships and jobs.
Students were asked to think about what an employer would be looking for in a CV and job application, the structure, the general information to be included in a CV and tangible achievements they could write about. Students were then given valuable one-to-one support, going through CVs and job applications they had already written.
Julia Falaki, Partnership Manager at GWP, commented: “The workshop with UTC Swindon students was a great success. We were impressed by the students’ enthusiasm and the number who thanked us at the end of the session.”
