The main focus of the assessment for this unit is on the skills required to apply for jobs. However, it is expected that the underpinning teaching and learning will help develop learners’ understanding of
• judicious use of unsolicited applications
• the importance of demonstrating an understanding of the job role and organisation and the relevance of own skills and prior experience in a job application
• the importance of having an up-to-date CV ready to tailor to specific job opportunities
• the value of following up on unsuccessful applications and using employer feedback to improve future applications
To support learners to apply for jobs.
