The app this CV has been prepared on is intuitive and has simplified language, allowing users to upload evidence of their work experience and skills through simplified text, Makaton, photos and videos.

The app allows students to select key words to describe themselves – soft, personal skills such as ‘I am kind and caring’, and also specific achievements relating to the skills they have gained in their curriculum pathway area. Users will also be able to show video mock interviews, references and upload certificates and photos.

The app then generates a personalised pdf CV that you, as a potential employer or work placement provider, can view.  You will find links to videos and photographs uploaded by the user. Using this app is a really valuable tool to show you what the user can do, when they might find it difficult to explain during an interview situation.
