    When i got mine i ended up stripping out all the crap they put in and using it to store all my certificates and things that make you look good for an employer, its worth it just for the case in my opinion.

    It's a record of your achievements

    Teachers make you write a lot of stuff about non-academic achievements and ambitions etc etc in it because when you first get it you don't hae any certificates. It's a handy folder for storing things like certificates and other job searching stuff (ie copies of applications forms, CVs and your NI card) although I found the ink leached off some of my certificates and stained the inside of the plastic pockets.
