Look up examples online or ask your family members to help you. Have a section that is about you like a mini paragraph. And a section for work experience or any volunteering work or if you don’t have any put any certificates or awards that you think would help. A section on your education and what grades, you can put your alevels on there and put your predicted grades but change it once you’ve gotten your results. At the top of your cv it should always say your full name, phone number and email and your home address however for safety reasons don’t put the door number and when you enter a Jon your employee will always ask for your home address.
What I’ve written is really vague but I hope this helps
Also you can search up words that can help you in your cv for example most people will put ‘I am an outgoing person...’ so if you can find a different word which is not ‘outgoing’ you will stand out since you’re not using basic language

It should be fairly straightforward, no one expects someone at A level stage to have a wealth of experience and achievements. Lead with a paragraph about how enthusiastic, hard working and reliable you are. Then list your qualifications and any other interesting pursuits and successes. And apply for some relevant jobs which are of interest. There will be guidance on line or through the National Careers Service about CV writing, but displaying some work ethic, enthusiasm and common sense are the most important things. Should be like falling off a log in the post Brexit employment scene

I'd recommend for writing a CV to look into the role you are applying to, the job description will mention some key words or phrases regarding the values or the objective the role will have, try to mix these key words into the CV that you are writing. For the structure of the CV there are plenty of places online or through YouTube that can give you some guidance.

Best of luck with the applications, hopefully you can find a good fit!

Look on google. You’ll see the typical structure of them read some guides, look at CVs for the jobs you are planning on applying for.
