Assessment 2A policy analysis practice activity
Before you proceed you must see the policy topics for assessment 2A on the Moodle page under the assessment box above the upload point for the assessment.
There you will find links to literature that will help your analysis.
You need to select a specific policy to analyse, not simply a policy problem.
For example if you select Family Violence you need to analyse a state level policy such as Ending family violence – Victoria’s 10-year plan for change or The National Plan to Reduce Violence against Women and their Children 2010 – 2022. If you are not sure if you have selected a policy or are not sure what the problem is, post a question in the Assessment 2 forum. A tutor/facilitator will let you know if you are on track.
The assessment task is as follows.
Select a policy from the list below:
1. NDIS
2. Homelessness policy (for your state e.g. NSW if you live in Sydney, WA if you live in Perth, Victoria if you live in Melbourne or surrounding suburbs, QLD if you live in this state)
3. Family Violence policy (for your state)
4. Refugees Policy
In 1000 words, using the concepts and literature provided in this unit and through your own independent research, undertake an analysis of the selected policy. Your analysis will:
• Provide a brief history of this policy in Australia, key moments of change in either the problem and/or the policy and some social and political drivers of that change.
• Describe and discuss the ideological influences apparent in the policy as it stands today.
• Provide an example of another welfare regime’s response to a similar problem.
• Evaluate the extent to which this policy contributes to a more socially just Australia
The paper will demonstrate that you understand:
• That welfare and social policy is contested. (There are many points of view).
• How history influences current policy and a history of your policy topic
• The meaning and influence of ideology in social policy and you can identify ideologies in policy documents
• Key features of another welfare regime
• The meaning of social justice, one or two theories of social justice and an ability to recognise approaches to social justice in current policy
The essay will follow formal essay structure including an introduction, a body with your main points, and a conclusion which summarises your points and reiterates your position on the question of social justice for community service workers. Assume 4 body paragraphs of 200 words and 1 each of introduction and conclusion at 100 words.
The activity below is not in formal essay format. Use it as a tool to help you gather the material needed for your essay. Do not hand in this filled out template as your essay
Complete the following activity by filling in the blanks and gaps with your own words about your assessment 2. If you can do this, then you can write the analysis. You do not need to hand this in so it can be in note form.
If you are struggling or find some parts difficult:
• Go back to the key weeks and re-do the activities. All of the weeks concepts and activities have been practice to write this assessment.
• Use the Question-and-Answer Assessment Forum to ask questions.
• Attend the live webinar to ask questions directly to your tutor. Find the dates on the Moodle page
