Writing a CV
One of the first things you might want to think about is writing a CV.
A CV is a written description of your education, achievements, and previous employment. It’s used to show someone who you are and what you can do. If you haven’t had a job before or don’t have qualifications, don’t worry – there are many types of experience you can list on your CV to show what your skills and interests are.
Working & benefits
Many people with a learning disability access money and benefits in order to be independent and to live the life they choose.
