    What are the possible ways to refer to employability skills in an English lesson if it's on descriptive writing

    Not sure what you are asking?

    My simple definition of descriptive writing would be 'painting a picture of a scene or person using carefully selected and evocative words'.

    A CV would probably contain a section for 'job descriptions' where the writer could list the posts they held and their achievements within those posts.

    But I don't quite see the connection between the use of the descriptive writing style, and producing a CV ?

    Coherent written work using a range of grammatical features accurate spelling and punctuation. Coherent structure, well planned.
    You should have a list f the employability skills which you are expected to refer to in your lessons. these include good timekeeping; team work; working upon their own initiative; respect to other members of the group, including teachers; resilience; tenacity blah blah. If you are lucky they may be mentioned on your scheme of work.
