What am I required to do on this assessment?
Choose a suitable subject and develop a health promotion campaign to address the public health issues for the subject, equivalent up to 500 words, in the form of, for example, a poster or leaflet or online advertisement.
Write a 2000-word assignment in relation to the chosen health promotion campaign identifying its importance, relevance and how it will be implemented and evaluated for effectiveness. Explore local and/or national health promotion strategy currently used to address the public health issue identified explaining why preventative health strategies are not always successful.
Every module learning outcome must be covered to pass the module.
In writing the assignment:
• Must be a Microsoft document. We cannot ensure that other formats are compatible with markers’ software resulting in work that cannot be marked.

• Arial font size 12, with 1.5 line spacing must be used, as this will assist staff when marking assignments.

• Include page numbers in the footer
• Write the number of words at the end of the assignment

• Assignment to be written in the 3rd person

• Do not copy and paste work from any source. Software that Text-matches and looks for plagiarism is used on all submissions and can identify where a student has copied or followed the wording of sources very closely and then not cited their source. Failing to acknowledge sources or copying and pasting, can result in you being referred for consideration of an assessment offence.
• Ensure that any literature search related to your submitted work has been undertaken by yourself; it is not appropriate for this to be undertaken by someone else – for example you should not request, for example, NHS Trust Library staff undertake a literature search for you
• Include one reference list at the end of the assignment (on a new page)
• A bibliography is not required
• An appendix may be used if required – for the health promotion campaign

For the Public Health campaign:

• Provide a separate reference list for the campaign clearly labelled as reference list for the public health campaign. This can be added to the 2000-word document and follow the 2000-word assignment reference list.

Submission guide:

Where should I start?
Choosing a relevant subject for the assessment and reading about public health campaigns that have been successful and those which have not been so successful. Look at the resources on the blackboard module page and begin to build your own resource relevant to your subject to help you when you begin to develop the assessment required material.

What do I need to do to pass?

To pass the module you are required to achieve a mark of 40%.
This mark will be the written assignment mark out of 90% plus the health campaign mark out of 10%. Full marks for both, added together, make 100%.
When both marks are added together for your submission, they must meet 40% to pass the module.
If the evidence you present does not present what you set out to do, regardless of their own merit, you may not pass.
All learning outcomes must be met to pass.

    • Avoid copying and pasting any work into this assessment, including your own previous assessments, work from other students or internet sources
    • Develop your own style, arguments and wording, so avoid copying sources and changing individual words but keeping, essentially, the same sentences and/or structures from other sources
    • Never give your work to others who may copy it
    • If an individual assessment, develop your own work and preparation, and do not allow anyone to make amends on your work (including proof-readers, who may highlight issues but not edit the work) and

When submitting your work, you will be required to confirm that the work is your own, and text-matching software and other methods are routinely used to check submissions against other submissions to the university and internet sources.
