Top CV Tips and Guidelines

  • CV with No Experience: The good news is that because this job is an “entry-level” position most vacancies for this job position do not specify a candidate to have prior work experience in the field. Nevertheless, it is highly recommended that you get some sort of experience in working with children (preferably in a school setting) which would be very advantageous for you during the selection process, particularly when your CV is first being skim-read by a prospective employer.
  • Mention all the extracurricular activities (such as peer mentoring, one-to-one tutoring, etc.) which are relevant for the position that you are applying for.
  • As a Learning Support Assistant, the primary aim of your job is to support the learning of the students. Therefore, clearly demonstrate how passionate you are about helping and guiding students, solving problems and difficulties and being a vital member of the academic team to help students with achieving their goals and aspirations.

Good Luck!
