...Unit 24: P4 & P5 P4 - Describe the importance of referral to other organisations. P5 - Describe potential boundary issues that could occur in a helping relationship. The referral to other organisations means to see whether the patient needs counselling at all or needs another professional for their problems, such as a psychologist, doctor, hypnotist or doctor etc. It is important to refer the client to other organisations because they may need help from different medical service sectors, for example the client may have an eating disorder therefor they are obese and they end up seeing a counsellor about their problem, which doesn’t make much sense, this is why the referral system is crucial so instead of the client going to the wrong service, they can go to a physiotherapist and help them overcome their obesity. There are many protocols assessed before giving a client a referral, they make sure the urgency of referral is determined by several factors such as; level of risk involved, wishes of client, immediate nature of the demands for the service and wishes of clients family, friends guardians etc. They also have to make sure that the certain type of service they refer the client to will benefit them and help them rehabilitate themselves to get over their problems. In conclusion it is important that the client gets referred to the proper professional to help them with their dilemma, however the client is entitled to know what kind of professional they are being......

...P5 M3 Assess the impacts of changes in global and European business environment on a selected business. Oil price fluctuations Crude oil is the worlds most traded commodity by value, it is vital for many industries e.g. transportations, polymers and energy production that are closely linked with oil production As you can see in the image above the price of oil has crashed within a few months which has drastically decreased the price of fuels, the cause of this crash was due to new production methods which allowed other people to produce oil rather than the just the few that could before, this new method is called fracking. Assessment of impacts for KI KI are not heavily reliant on oil, they only use fuel for their cars which their main consumption. The price of fuel does influence them though, the biggest benefit is the effect on the customers, the lowering of the price of fuel means that people will, in effect, have a small pay rise, this will help KI as this will increase their customer’s disposable income and increase their consumer confidence. KI will always have oil related costs linked to their business as they use energy that is produced from oil and resources that wouldn’t be possible without oil e.g. polymers. The lowering of the oil price will help KI to maximise profits as they will be spending less on things that are oil based.

...Unit 3 P5 Marketing Segmentation Introduction In this assignment I will be discussing different types of marketing segmentations, so what is segmentation? Segmentation is used by businesses to help target their products at the right customers. It is about recognising the specific needs and wants of customer groups and then using this information into providing products and services which meet customer needs. Geographic Companies segment the market by attacking a restricted geographic area. It is very valuable information because businesses can precisely tailor their products mix based on a location, for example, people in Cambridge show a preference for coffee whereas consumers in Lincolnshire tend to prefer tea. This information will allow a tea company to focus marketing its product more up north in Lincolnshire rather than Cambridge. Demographic Demographic segmentation means dividing a market into a group, age, gender, race, occupation and income. For example, Dove created a product for called ‘Men + Care’ which is a hygiene product targeted only for men. Psychographic/Behaviour Psychographic Segmentation is based on personality, values, lifestyle, interests, attitudes, self image or opinions. For example, Ducati is a motorbike manufacturer and may segment its market on the basis of personality variables such as a masculine image, independent, impulsive and fearless. Macbook Pro The MacBook pro is a line of Macintosh portable computers......

The trading account shows the business has made a gross profit before taking into account other expenses associated with the business such as overheads. The purpose of a profit and loss account is to: Show whether a business had made a profit or a loss over a given time period (e.g.financial year). Describe how the profit or loss arose (e.g. categorising costs between most of sales and operating costs). Sales/Revenue is an income earned by the business from the sales of its products/services over a period of time, including discounts and deductions for returned merchandise. Sales/Revenue is known as the “top line” because it is displayed first on a company's statement. Expenses are deducted from revenue in order to obtain net income— the “bottom line”.

...BTEC business Studies 15 The impact of communications technology on business Business Unit 33 Andres Yunda How the internet works The internet is still in its younger age, and has barely any technology compared to its future designs. Each and every year, scientists and engineers find new technologies and languages to integrate into the internet. It is basically a global collection of networks, both big and small, which connect to each other in a variety of ways. To properly understand the internet, you need to look at some of the main components. One of which is hardware. Hardware is the name given to the whole process of terabytes of information being carried to the computer that stands right in front of you. It is the collection of physical elements that constitutes a computer system. Other types of hardware that support the internet include routers, servers, cell phone towers, satellites, radios, smart phones and many other devices. All these devices create the network of networks when put together. The internet is a malleable system, which basically means that it will take little effect when different elements join or leave worldwide networks. Internet as a network: The internet began in the year 1969, and only had 4 main servers (host computer systems). Now, it has over ten million users and servers. Every computer that is connected to the internet forms part of a network. For example, your computer may use dial up or a modem in order to have internet......

...| P4 and P5: Draw up plans to assess the design of the website. | Mr Morgan | | Phillips.Kieran | | | Purpose The purpose of this website is to be largely promotional and raise the status of Monmouth and the surrounding areas as a destination for overseas visitors. In achieving this, the website is designed to be informational, educational and to encourage tourists to visit and stay in the area. Availability and Accessibility Starting with the basic, yet key aspect of usability, I will be discussing the availability and accessibility of the site. If people try to access the website and it doesn’t work — for whatever reason –the website becomes worthless. An example is server uptime, it’s important to ensure the possible or current visitors don’t get an error trying to load the site therefore it will be wise to invest in good hosting which will be done. Another example is broken links, it is essential to double check that there are no dead links on the site. Another key aspect to consider is Mobile responsiveness, ensuring that the site can handle different screen sizes and slow connections. Clarity The second key aspect to usability is clarity. If you distract or confuse your visitors, they will either need more time to find what they came for, or they might forget their initial goal all together. Either way, they will not experience the website as user-friendly or chances are that they will leave dissatisfied and with no intention of coming back....

...Unit 11 Task 2 In this essay I will be outlining key legislations and regulations which govern safeguarding adults work. Legislation is a law or set of laws suggested by a government. Regulations are rules that then have to be following that coincide with the regulations that are set. I will also be outlining working strategies and procedures used in health and social care to reduce the risk of abuse. Care Act 2014 Before the care act came into place people had different rights for different types of care. So the care act 2014 made it simpler. It ensures that service user’s personal budget was recognised by law to give more rights and prevent abuse. It helps reduce risk of service users suffer from financial abuse and from discriminatory abuse. They should protect adults at risk of all types of abuse. Equality Act 2010 The Equality Act 2010 legally protects people from discrimination in the workplace and in wider society. It replaced previous anti-discrimination laws with a single Act, making the law easier to understand and strengthening protection in some situations. It sets out the different ways in which it’s unlawful to treat someone. The equality act protects you from harassment which is when you are subjected to unwanted behaviour that makes you feel intimidated, humiliated, or degraded, or that creates a hostile environment, because of your age or another protected characteristic. For example, if a nurse repeatedly made jokes about your age, which were......
