How To Get The Job YOU Want – Make Your CV Stand Out

Hired employee CV.

CV, Curriculum Vitae, Résumé – there are a number of names for what is essentially the same thing – a document which clearly shows your achievements and experience.

Writing a CV can be a daunting task – especially if it’s your first time. Few of us feel comfortable with shouting about how good we are at something but that is in effect what a CV does; it provides you with an opportunity to list everything you’ve accomplished and talk about how great you are.

My Total People Experience by Melissa Hillard

“I started at Total People in September 2016 and was what I would call your typical teenager, who just wanted to get through college and come out at the end with a job and some qualifications. I thought that it was just going to be like school with “naggy” teachers and big classes with teenagers acting like children, but Total People is completely different; the classes are smaller, the learners act like grownups and the tutors are supportive and understanding.

The Apprenticeship Levy Is Here, Are You Ready?

In the 2015 Autumn Budget, the Chancellor announced the introduction of a new levy on all large UK employers to fund Apprenticeships. The levy underpins the Government’s Apprenticeship reform programme and its commitment to achieving 3 million Apprenticeship starts by 2020 – a 35% increase in the Apprenticeships delivered in the last Parliament. The levy is intended to provide the funding and incentives to help deliver this commitment.

The levy will support all post-16 Apprenticeships in England. It will provide funding that each employer can use to meet their individual needs. The funding will be directly controlled by employers via the digital Apprenticeships voucher, and firms that are committed to training will be able to get back more than they put in.
