• A community profile will be completed for your chosen community. You will gather, analyse and present information and data on your community. The profile will consist of a written section of 2000 words with a portfolio of supporting data. The written section of 2000 words and the portfolio of data is the equivalent of 2000 words. The community profile and portfolio are deemed to be 4000 words in total.
• The profile will cross-refer to a range of primary and secondary data in the portfolio. The primary data will be in the form of photographs of your chosen community. The secondary data will be drawn from sources like local government area or ward profiles or NHS health profiles; the media; non-statutory and other local or regional bodies. These will be supported by academic sources to present an assessment of assets and needs. The photographs and secondary data in the portfolio will be the equivalent of 2000 words.
• The written section of the community profile (2000 words) should include: -
• A brief introduction to ways of assessing community needs and assets including different methods and processes (this should reference the academic literature and relates to learning outcomes 1 and 2). There should be reference to Community Based Participatory Research methodology including Photo-elicitation and Photovoice.
• There should be a reference to why your community can be considered a ‘community’. Reference should be made to different definitions of community (relates to learning outcome 1);
• An outline description of the community you have chosen including any important or notable features (relates to learning outcome 1).
• There should be detailed consideration of the needs and assets in your community which you have identified and illustrated with primary data (photographs) and secondary data (e.g. media, census and other official data).
• You should also identify and consider implications for the community by reference to academic and other work and also consider community development responses (relates to learning outcomes 1, 2 and 3).
• A brief overall summary of the ‘state of the community’ (relates to learning outcomes 1 and 3).
• The photographs can be placed in the body of the text or collated in an online portfolio or appendix. The secondary data should be included in an online portfolio or appendix. All secondary sources should be referenced appropriately and included in a reference list.
• The portfolio should include a table of contents. Each item of data e.g. a ward profile should be accompanied by a written explanation of what it is; its authorship; what it shows and why you have included it in your portfolio.
The University operates word limits against written assignments. The limits exist within a 10% above or below the specified word count boundary. Where a student exceeds the minimum or maximum word count figure, the School-based policy for exceeding the word count applies which is to discount all text after the word count has been reached.
