The Student Wellbeing Ambassador Programme (SWAP)
Turning students into wellbeing experts
“This course has been amazing for the students – it gave them an interest in psychology and that’s the subject they want to study further. Two of our students now want to be therapists because of this program. Thank you.” Phyllis Hodgson, Teacher
Why choose the
The evidence shows that, when you’re serious about culture-wide behaviour change to maximise wellbeing, it’s the voices of students that really count.
It’s not a case of deciding whether to focus on wellbeing or academic success. The evidence shows that when you increase student wellbeing, academic success also increases. That’s because students learn best when they’re happy and confident.
The SWAP includes not only videos and quizzes, it also challenges the students to live the ideas through downloads such as sleep and thought diaries. Then, once they’ve learned and lived the ideas, they’re also challenged to spread the ideas throughout their school or college through a series of campaigns.
