Work Experience

During school, I was given the opportunity to work in a local primary school, helping the teacher in class, taking part in group activities and supervising the children which I really enjoyed.  I was involved in organising lesson plans for art, music and sporting activities.  It gave me an insight into the amount of planning and organisation involved in teaching.  I got on well with other teachers and the children.  The placement was for a week but I learned a lot of skills in that week which I still make use of now.

One thought on “Student CV Example

  1. At the risk of sounding incredibly out of date, why does someone need to submit a CV to be a student?  I know that some universities would expect a "personal statement" but a CV??
