Lovely example, I have a friend studying to be a teacher at the moment and is currently looking round for placements (she is doing her degree right now) - I will point her in this direction if she needs some CV help

1st sentence has an error; not a very good start! (Perhaps "self-motivated"?)

1st paragraph also mixes 1st & 3rd person - keep your prose style consistent! I would not consider this person for the job unfortunately...
