CV and Assessment Centres

Our workshop prepares students for the many stages of the recruitment process to help them understand how to stand out from the crowd. The workshop is split into two main areas – CV Skills workshop to help students develop their CV writing skills and a mock assessment centre which is based on a real-life mock assessment centre. This workshop prepares students for the many stages of the recruitment process for future jobs and Higher Education applications.


Join an in-person workshop hosted by The Switch and share your CV writing tips as well as give feedback to students based on their mock assessment centre task.

Volunteer in person – interact with students and act as recruiters to give them an authentic experience of an assessment centre.
Full day event - make the most of your volunteering by spending a full day with young people.
Prepare the future workforce – give students the taste of a real-life assessment centre to help them in a competitive job market.
