Sex discrimination act 1975 This act applies for both men and women. It promotes that both men and women should be treated equally. For example, in transport, education, jobs etc. It promotes anti-discriminatory practice by making sure those men and women are treated equally, if this act applies didn’t exist, men and women may be deprived of certain choices. This act includes any discrimination against homosexual marriages or civil partnerships, any discrimination against pregnant women and maternity leave, also about equal pay for both men and women. Disability discrimination act 2005 This act applies to anyone that has some sort of disability. This act is in place to protect disabled people against discrimination both in employment and when using a service or facility. For example, anyone with a disability should have the same opportunities in work or learning places such as school, colleges or universities. In other places such as shops and banks, and to also make sure that they are treated fairly when they go somewhere to eat or drink, such as restaurants or pubs. Public transport services have to make sure trains; buses, etc. are accessible and have the right facilities for anyone with a disability. “The government has implemented the legislation in three phases.

...P5 - Design a promotional campaign for a given product/service to meet the needs of a given campaign/creative brief. In this assignment, I have a friend who is setting up a sandwich and snack bar to provide lunches for workers at a local industrial estate. To help him out I have agreed to design a promotional campaign. It is essential for this sandwich and snack bar to be located inside the local industrial estate. The sandwich/snack bar is aiming to provide lunch to the workers working at the industrial estate on a daily basis, which includes a seating area. To start of the new snack bar/sandwich bar, employees working at the snack bar would be handing out free samples of the fresh different flavoured sandwiches, Panini's, and samples of any other quick snacks. This will be done in order for the customers/consumers, specifically workers at the local industrial estate to experience the extravagant flavouring and taste, which will encourage them to come inside and buy more. The sandwich/snack bar will market the products sold at the sandwich/snack bar as healthy and nutritious as all the products which will be sold at the sandwich/snack bar would be made freshly and all ingredients and within comes with 100% fruit juice and a bag of either fruit or fruit salad.

...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.

...P5 Interpret the contents of a trading and profit and loss account and balance sheet for a selected business’s annotated final accounts. 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”. Sales is calculated by multiplying the price at which goods or services are sold by the number or units or amount sold.

National Health Service is a public sector company run by the government. But nevertheless all companies are affected by the economic environment. But in this assignment I will be highlight the two main factors that ‘Recession and Boom’. National Health Service is a company that is run by the government.

... language. Being self-aware will ensure that you will become more aware of yours and others needs and should reduce prejudice. When you become a care worker you must commit to the care value base which is the legislation that states the values that should be shared across all health and care professions. These include demonstrating equality, anti-discriminatory practice, effective communication and confidentiality amongst others. Communication includes careful use of language and it is vital that you ensure that clients understand what you are saying to them and that you can understand what they are trying to communicate to you to help form good relationships. You must always try to use the clients preferred method of communication to ensure that the client understands what is happening to them and that they are able to have their needs met. Not everyone is suitable to work in the health care industry; this is because they are required to commit to the care value base so it is a deciding factor for anyone who may want to follow a health and social care career.

...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...

The two therapies that Eileen has been researching and considering are acupuncture and osteopathy. * Acupuncture is said to help relieve pain by either diverting or changing the painful sensations that are sent to the brain to then alert you to the pain within the body.
