When you are applying for further education or work, you need to give information about yourself. Usually you have to fill in an application form. However you can also apply for jobs by sending a CV and covering letter or email.
How to complete an application form
Check the date of when the form must be sent in. You should start filling it in well before the deadline. Before you fill in the form, read through the form carefully noting all the information you need and make sure you have this to hand. If it is a paper form, take a photocopy of the form and practise filling it in. Only when you are happy with your answers and sure you can complete all the sections neatly should you attempt to fill in the original form. If it is an online form, check to see if you can save the form as a draft before you start filling it in. If you can’t save a draft copy of your application, see if you can download or copy the form so you can practise and review your answers before you have to send them off.
Your CV should give important information about yourself.
