SWAPBox is a JISC funded initiative to create repository for storing, managing and sharing teaching resources on social policy and social work. It can be used to share almost any kind of resource: handout, exercise, slide presentations, audio recordings, videos.
The project will evaluate the use and reuse of open educational resources, and encourage the further sharing of learning resources through collaboration with a range of institutional and work-based partners.
The resource database is the Choose Life website's fully searchable portal of knowledge, giving visitors access to training manuals, websites, guidance documents leaflets, manuals and more in the field of suicide and mental health.
The database was developed in direct response to calls by those working in the field to pull together information on the range of materials/resources available.
Over its 2 year duration, the Careers Scotland Enhanced Resource Pilot (ERP) project was evaluated, assessing the extent to which the provision impacted on the pupils who received the support and on the School Leaver Destination Return (SLDR) figures for each of the pilot schools.
