Skills development

If you are thinking about how best to fill your days now is a good time to reflect on your own personal goals and set new ones. We have listed a few ideas below to get you started.

Create a personal statement

A personal statement supports your UCAS application to study at a university or college. It’s your chance to articulate why you’d like to study a particular course or subject, and highlight what skills and experience you possess that show your passion for your chosen field. Get tips and advice on how to prepare one here using your YFC experience.

Learn a new skill 

Boost your CV by undertaking a short course. Whether you want to advance your knowledge or learn something completely new, there are lots of companies and training providers re-writing courses that can be accessed online.

Revamp your CV  

Now would be a good time to refresh your CV remembering to include any skills you have learnt through YFC whether that is taking on a club officer role, taking part in a competition or getting involved in a community project. 

Linkedin and recruitment sites 

Having up-to-date details on Linkedin and other recruitment sites will make sure that you are visible and have a better chance of finding the right job for you. Update your profiles and check contact details are current. 

Career search

How can you do a job if you never knew it existed? Now is a good time to research the range of careers available. There are lots of sites and you can narrow down your search by starting with your interests and skill sets.     


Whilst we cannot currently continue to volunteer in the same way as before we can help our club stay engaged with members and by helping others in the community assisting in local and national schemes such as the NHS call for volunteers or supporting UK growers with the seasonal labour shortage. Every little helps.
