Why Early Years Teaching Jobs Are Rewarding

Posted on December 18, 2014 at 11:34 am

Early years teachers or nursery teachers, work in nursery, reception and pre-school classes. They usually teach children aged between three and five. They organise, plan and supervise various play and learning activities for young children in a supportive and safe setting. Early years teachers also record observations and summarise the achievements of their pupils. They concentrate on preparing young children to transition to primary school education successfully.

CV templates off the internet

Posted on December 16, 2014 at 9:37 pm

There are thousands of websites that offer CV templates and many of them are free. Some of the templates are quite good whilst others are simply very outdated or not written well.

When using a template to write a CV you should always make sure that you check everything that is in there. Too many people rely on the spelling, punctuation and grammar being correct simply because they think that a template will always be correct (this is very often not the case).

Although a template can be a great way to start a CV you should look at more than one as they can differ greatly in content and layout suggestions.

One important thing you must do when using a CV template is ensure that you proof read your CV a few times and ideally get a friend or family member to read through it too. It is very easy to leave a section of information in a CV that was on the original template and does not apply to you.
