PONToon CV Writing Workshop Pack

A graphic featuring a photo of someone writing out their CV on a laptop. The graphic features a gradiented background overlaid with a design reminiscent of wires, as well as the interreg FCE logo.

The following page contains useful resources for trainers who are looking to run a workshop teaching learners the basics of how to write an effective CV. The information presented here is intended to fill roughly a 1.5 - 2-hour session for a small to medium size group but can be scaled up or down as required.

The pack includes: 

  • A template slideshow presentation that gives an overview of the basics of CV writing. The slides can be presented as they are, or can be adapted to suit the specific needs of your learners.
  • A slide-by-slide guide with some useful tips on how to deliver a CV writing workshop
  • A CV comparison exercise which emphasises the differences between a good CV and a bad CV.
