A piece of work looking at the CAF. An introduction outlining what would be covered would be useful to help the reader get a sense of what will be presented. It is also useful for the writer in terms of using it to check that what it is the main body matches what was written in the introduction. As it was not clear what the purpose of the work was, suffice to say that there were several statements which needed substantiating, and it was unclear why there were several quotes from (unidentified) research included. The writing style was in need of improvement due to the frequency of spelling and grammar errors which would not be acceptable for work at this level. Remember to include a list of references at the end of the work. 2/5
