Structuring content pages

Choosing a template and structuring the information in a new content page.

The basics

All content pages on the Practice Centre should:

  • have clear, action-based headings, to help staff skim the page when looking to solve a particular problem
  • be arranged in process order if an order exists
  • be broken up with subheadings, bullets and short paragraphs
  • link to the relevant section of related policies
  • have links to related guidance information and resources.

Choosing a template

There are 4 kinds of content pages on the Practice Centre.

Policies and practice standard pages are handled differently.
Structuring a policy

Section page

Uses the section template.

Used for landing pages of 'Our work' subsections. These pages:

  • have a summary
  • contain automatically generated links to the pages that sit in that section
  • contain content if there's a process overview that applies to the whole subsection of content.

Example

Assessments

Topic page

Uses the topic template.

Used for topic overview pages. These pages:

  • have a summary
  • start with an introduction to the topic — what is this?
  • clarify the audience — when should you do this/who should do it?
  • include a process overview — how do you do it?
  • link to related policies, guidance information and resources.

These pages are a brief overview of the overall process for the topic — put detailed guidance information about particular points on separate guidance pages.

Example

Care and protection family group conference

Guidance page

Uses the topic template.

Used for more detailed practice guidance around a specific process step or nuance of practice. These pages:

  • have a summary
  • don't have a set structure
  • link to related policies, topics and resources.

Example

Working with tamariki when allegations of abuse, neglect, or harm are made against their caregiver

Practice tool page

Uses the topic template.

Used for practice tools. These pages:

  • have a summary
  • start with an introduction to the topic — 'What is [name of tool]'
  • explain when it's used — 'When to use it'
  • clarify the audience — 'Who uses it'
  • include a process overview — 'How to use it'
  • link to related policies, topics, guidance information and resources.

Example

Child/young person and family consult

Components of content pages

There are several components you can use to make your content easier to read and understand, such as page summaries, process blocks, accordions and links.
