Assessment task two requires you to utilise your analysis from assessment task one to propose a strategy to enhance community participation in the chosen emergency services context. In preparing your strategy you will consider current approaches to community participation, the impact of community participation on emergency services contexts, and apply the principles of participation and collaboration to enhance current efforts.
You have two options in completing this task:
Option a) - you utilise the group you identified in assessment task one or select another group and focus your strategy on improving the participation of that group, for example increasing numbers or increasing, changing or enhancing the contribution or a combination of both.
Option b) – you take a higher level view and propose a strategy that looks at the whole-of-organisation and all of the various groups within the chosen context and propose an organisational-level strategy that enhances participation more broadly.
Please ensure you clearly identify which option you have selected. The assessment task will be up to 2000 words in total and importantly your response must be supported by appropriate literature.
Assessment two is completed via Moodle. You are free to present the response in a written format that best suits you, however, you must respond to each requirement (up to approximately 2000 words). The response must include as a minimum:
a) Title page;
b) Chosen emergency service context;
c) Participation in that context;
d) The particular group you have chosen to work with (delete this section if you have selected the whole of organisation strategy (that is option b) and add additional discussion to section c);
e) Strategy for enhancing participation, with a clear link to models and theories related to volunteerism.
Note: your response must be supported with appropriate literature.
