Re: Virgin Media Assessment day - Access Field Tech
This is MY opinion from doin social work presentations, but the way to a presentation is to have a start a middle and an end. (even in the 3 min time slot)
So how i would approach this would be to break it down into the 3 sections then to write some bullet points about each section, then expand the points to make a paragrah for each section. Keep it light hearted and not to clinical as u dont want to bore them for 3 mins.
Start by explaining wat ur job is and wat is involved on a day to day basis (the start)
Relate how ur experience/training/qualifications help to support the inmates, include some light hearted banter which relates to the visual aids u have used. (middle section)
For the conclusion u pull it together by relating how ur experience can be transfered to ur role as a field tech. (end section)
For ur visual aids, u could either use handouts/leaflets which could include a timeline of a prison offers role through the ages to reflect how times and the law has changed, this could be using light banter cartoon pics etc within the leaflet this is to ease the feeling of being watched as well and takes the pressure from u as they look at the leaflet. You could maybe use a flip chart in different coloured writing to catch their eye writing for instance prison officer, then making it like a spider chart use the sub sections for training/qualifications/role etc then u can point to this as u give ur presentation.
There are many ways to complete this task, and only u can judge how formal the presentation needs to be
Hope this gives u some ideas of where to start
