On Tuesday 1st March our senior pupils in S5 and S6 who will be leaving Alford Academy in summer 2022, were invited to take part in a practical session lead by our career advisor, to help write a CV in preparation for their future pathway.
The turn out was very good and pupils followed a step by step process to create their personal CV’s and covering letters.
The session was lead by Jemma Kinnaird, our Skills Development Scotland Career advisor and Aimee Maitland, our Developing the Young Workforce school coordinator.
After the session, pupils were equipped with an up to date CV ready for distributing to potential employers.
“This was extremely helpful and informative and now I have a CV that I can use straight away and update regularly when I need to”.
“Very helpful and now I can write a CV. This helped me develop my personal CV and made me think of aspects to add to my CV that I wouldn’t have considered”.
