You should refer to the assessment criteria and also the relevant unit content, when preparing your evidence for assessment.
Scenario
Working as a new employee within Health and Social Care you are going to need to complete some further research into care values and relate these to your own. This will help you set targets for future work and development.
Task  1 (LO1 1.1 1.2 1.3 and M2)

You are going to create an autobiographical piece of writing. This will comprise the start of your portfolio. You should begin with an introduction into the principles of health and social care support, before outlining your own personal values and principles and then comparing the two.

You will then use the information to assess your own role in supporting the service users you currently work with. Before lastly discussing new developments and changes to your values can impact on working within the sector.

To achieve M2 you must select appropriate resource materials when researching the values of care with the use of the internet, journals, publications and text. The bibliography must be presented in an appropriate format and include at least three sources.

Submission Date: W/C 11th November 2013
Task 2 (LO3 3.1 3.2 3.3 and M1)

You are going to give a presentation using PowerPoint to new employees within your work setting, about the principles of professional engagement within the workforce and with service users. The presentation will be titled ‘Professional Engagement’ and run for 5 – 10 minutes.

Start with an introduction into professional relationships and describe your role within the company. You will then explain the nature of three different professional relationships within your setting, including external agencies. Think about what problems that could arise within these relationships and give examples of how to overcome them.
