How to Make a Video CV is a ten-module course looking at a fresh approach to supporting young people with additional needs into paid employment.

The course itself is "a video course" - each module has a video, a session plan for facilitators, worksheets for young people and, crucially, "Summary and Suggestion Sheets" for the young people, that they can use in their own time.

Who This Course is For

The course can be run at schools, colleges, community groups, day services and by parents.

Helpful information

The participants will fall, most likely, into two groups:
Group A) those young people from level 1 up to level 3, who (probably) have the ability to use video-editing software, or learn how to use it. Many of these young people will be at mainstream schools and will have support needs around ADHD, autism, dyslexia and other hidden disabilities.
Group B) those young people from entry level up to level 1 who (probably) would find video-editing software too challenging to use. Most of these young people would be at special schools, and specialist provisions.

Group A use, what the course calls, dark blue worksheets and Group B use, what the course calls, light blue worksheets

Facilitators are given clear instructions in their session plans how to use the two types of worksheets, and this is explained further in the introductory 35-minute facilitators' video tutorial.


“I have already seen an amazing impact on my pupils’ aspirations and discussion around future job opportunities. One young man in particular has historically struggled with discussing the future as it is ‘a very scary thing’. However, he looks forward to sessions, tells me they are ‘awesome’ and has stopped having anxious conversations with me about ‘growing up’, which in the past have led to out-bursts. For him, this is a huge step in reducing his many anxieties and not an outcome that I had anticipated. This story is just one example of the positive impact so far.”
