To prepare a speech on social service it would be helpful to think of the positive implications that social service holds. Primarily, the speech should be written in order to provide gratitude to the people involved in the activities or inspire others to join. The combination of both purposes in the speech is also possible, impacting a wider range of audience. A speech on social service should highlight the main accomplishments that were completed by the speaker or by the private or governmental organization. The examination of the future initiatives must also be included in the speech in order to provide the impression of a speaker being caring and willing to develop the service further. The initial necessity of a speech on social service is to address the effort that the social workers demonstrate each day for the improvement of the community.
Dear ladies and gentlemen,
I am honored to stand here in front of you today and deliver this speech. I am primary willing to express my gratitude to the effort that you have made in order to make our community better. The hardships that social service implies are immense. However, the determination and passion for the alteration of public happiness that you have made possible are outstanding. Social service is a diversified action for the change of the society. Today, I want to focus on the need to expand our outreach to educational settings within the city. Our community will incorporate in the new governmental program aimed at the improvement of public education in the area. The experience that we hold regarding public health, labor and food safety will strengthen our position in the development of a new strategy.
However, there are certain aspects to be developed within the organization of the social service that relates directly to the expansion of social workers involved. We should work hard in order to raise the prestige of being a social worker and maintain the status within the high range as well as quality. I encourage each of you today to relate to the most positive consequences that social service provided you with during the time of your involvement. I cannot judge for you, but I can state that for me social service has been a major boost in self – development and intellectual growth. It seems to be always about other people, yet once you reevaluate the impact on own life, you will feel the reward from daily involvement.
The greatest satisfaction is certainly brought through the gratitude exposed from the community. Seeing the immense change that you have made for the public is another reward of social service, as you are one that people turn to in case of help and support. The educational setting will be a new challenge for us as a community during the next year. However, I am certain in the success and development of the quality public education for the new generation. Please be patient and kind as you always are to the needs of the community. Together we can make a visible change.
Thank you for attention!

Here is a selection of tips on writing better essays from students and academics.
Liz Davies, London Metropolitan University
Be careful in your use of references.
Students should make good use of recommended websites, texts and journal articles. I always look at the references section before reading an essay and the quality of referencing is an excellent indicator of the overall quality of the essay. If a student lists references which are obscure and unknown to the marker, this may demonstrate a creative and interested approach to the subject but it also alerts me to the likelihood of plagiarised work.
A long list of references, without clear relevance as to how the student has made use of the exact source, is another alert to plagiarism and a “cut and paste” approach.
Use non-academic sources too.
Students often state that they should not quote Community Care as a source because they have been told to only make reference to peer-reviewed and academically sound material.
I do not agree with this approach because social work is a fast-developing field and Community Care provides a good pointer to other source material. I expect students to search the Community Care website as a useful source of current material. However, I expect them to use this information to direct themselves to other source material.

Keep to the word count.
There may be penalties if you go more than 10% over the maximum allowed.

Use your tutors and feedback to improve future essays.
Your tutors have a vested interest (their reputation and their jobs!) in getting you through so most will be willing to assist you in any way they can. If you’re not doing as well as you want to be, or if you fail a piece of work, go and see your personal tutor with samples of your essays and ask for tips about how you can improve.
Spread your work out so you don’t end up with five essays due in the same week.
This might sound simple and obvious but I’ve seen so many people saying something similar to “I’d planned my workload but now the deadline/ exam date has been changed and it means I’ve got two due on the same day/ week”. Plan well in advance – aim to finish the assignment well before the due date so if you get flu/ computer failure/ changed deadline you don’t end up struggling.

Always make a detailed essay plan.
The essay will just flow if you use a plan. Also try to get a family member to check over it. And you could also ask your tutor to check your plan to make sure you’re on the right track.

Use journal articles to access the most up-to-date research and information.
There are so many interesting articles out there and including them in your essays can potentially improve the quality of your work and this may boost your mark. It may also improve your practice.
Read your marker’s feedback and take it on board.
In the majority of cases, what they are saying makes sense. The university should have staff to support you with your academic work, especially if there are specific areas you are struggling with (citations, sentence structure, grammar, etc). Use this support and it will be of great benefit to your essay writing and your future practice.

Read the question carefully and make sure you understand exactly what is being asked of you.
Each word in an essay question has meaning – make sure you understand what this is for each essay and how this will influence the structure of your answer. Take the title apart word by word and think how each links to the criteria against which you are being assessed.
