1. Meeting agency requirements

For this activity you will need to find three different types of writing that you have completed in the past month. Each should have a different purpose, for example you could choose a case recording entry, an email, a report or a financial assessment. Think about the agency requirements for each piece of writing, by answering the following questions:

Was there a deadline for completing this writing set by your agency? Did you manage to keep to it and if not what were the reasons?

Did the writing need to be signed off or approved by anyone else? Was this process helpful or not and did it delay completing it?

Did anyone else contribute to the document? Or did you use another document to help you complete it?

Were there fixed fields or topics that had to be included? Was this helpful or did it create repetition?

Did you have to use a template or software system? Did this assist the writing or make it more difficult?
