Writing Task 1: The number of volunteers and paid workers in 4 different roles in the sports sector of an Australian town in 2015

 The bar chart shows the information of the number of volunteers and paid workers in 4 different roles in the sports sector of an Australian town in 2015.

Sample Answer:

The bar chart compares the number of paid and unpaid workers involved in four sports roles, namely coaching, referees, therapists and other sections, in the year of 2015 in an Australian town. 

In general, it can be seen that volunteers clearly favored coaching over any other roles. Meanwhile, there were no significant changes in the number of paid workers among the four roles.

The number of unpaid participants interested in coaching was highest, as around 75 of them enlisted to become volunteer coaches, followed by other sections with nearly 60 volunteers. The figure for volunteer therapists was half of that in coaching, with almost 45 volunteers, while only about 30 volunteers became referees.

Nearly 50 paid workers preferred to work in other sections, which was marginally higher than the number of paid coaches (over 40 people). The figures for workers in therapist and referee sections witnessed almost no clear distinction, as each welcomed more or less 40 workers.
