Provide a report that demonstrates your knowledge of key concepts in
this unit by identifying and discussing your organisation’s stakeholders;
describing and analysing the issue from a public relations perspective;

You will need to begin your analysis of each of the three elements
(stakeholders, issue and publics) with a discussion of a scholarly

In order to help you structure the content for this assignment, try

You will need a brief introduction and a conclusion as well, and all
content should be presented within the 1500-word limit. It’s up to you to
work out how many words go in each section.
Note that the word count is calculated by clicking on the word
‘Introduction’ in your report, and highlighting ALL content through to the
last word before the heading ‘References’. The total thus indicated is
your word count and should be between 1350 and 1650 words.
There should not be any need to include appendices in this assignment.
However, if you do choose to include them then you should be aware
that they must not contain information that you need to address the
requirements of the CRA sheet. Appendices do not count toward the
word limit, but the trade-off is that they cannot contain information that
has to be marked to help you meet the elements of the CRA. To make it
simple, imagine that your appendices will not be read by your marker:
will they still have all the information they need to work out whether you
have addressed the criteria?
This assessment item should be presented using report format. More
information will be provided to help you do this.
