INTRODUCTION – a small section 
Introductory section “sets out” for the remainder of the assignment “say what you’re going to say” 
Brief background that explains how you chose the role model and his/her role and leadership style in practice. Give the context of the leadership style and comment on its relevance. Refer to published research & literature 
Very brief background of chosen individual i.e. why you have chosen this person to be your role model (their attributes, strengths etc) including a brief description of what a role model is, backed up with a few references Since this is descriptive, it should not take up valuable space needed for analysis and criticism. Remember to adhere to confidentiality, your responsibility as a healthcare professional and the NMC Code (2015). 
Sound research based rationale why effective leadership is required for healthcare/mental health/the NHS You must provide a sound rationale for identifying the leadership style that you wish to examine. Your rationale must be based on published research & literature. Please see ‘leadership’ resources provided 
Very brief overview of presenting difficulties/dilemmas with demonstrating leadership in practice see above 

BODY OF THE TEXT – the largest section which addresses all aspects of the assessment specification as follows: 
Identify a role model in practice 
Paint a picture to the reader by providing the context whereby leadership in practice plays out in terms of its effect on the ward/unit/community environment both for the service users, staff/team/relatives. Remember that every word is important – don’t waste them on mere descriptions – always make academic points – perhaps by comparing your own experience with published research & literature. 
Investigate contemporary leadership theory skills of the identified role model. Use appropriate research and literature to aid your discussion and critical analysis- give examples and comparisons 
Critically analyse the evidence-base presented This part should provide you with opportunities to discuss your evaluation of the various leadership theories. Again, refer to published research/literature. 
Critically reflect upon the leadership style of the role model identified and the implications to future practice 
This section should demonstrate your ability to accurately use a model of critical and analytical reflection. See leadership handbook for relevant examples and other sources. 
You MUST demonstrate critical reflective practice 

Provide a summary and conclusion of the assignment, which will include both theoretical and practice issues This should demonstrate that you can concisely state key points – an important academic virtue. Draw together the ideas and evidence presented in the body of the essay so as to answer the basic question you posed in the introduction. Summarise the most important aspects of the material you presented and draw some obvious conclusions. 

Before submitting your assignment ENSURE that your references are accurate. Not doing so is the easiest way to lose valuable marks. Please refer to Harvard Referencing System
