    Tina, SWOT is strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats. Doing educational anaylsis on your unit focusing on two would be like if your unit has a strong orientation program focous on this. Critically analyze by saying what makes it strong, how staff feel about the orientation program. The other you could do on the educational opportunities allowed on your unit, such as speciality certifications, or ACLS, PALS then analzye that. SWOT is used to write a mission statement. If you are doing a similar program to the one I am doing, the porfolio will have a resume, transcript analysis, life learning papers using the Kolb cycle and autobiography. I have completed mine. Good luck hope I have helped.

    Donna thanx for the reply I did understand what a SWOT was but your reply has helped, the Tutors at my uni do offer guidence but they speak the acedemia speak LOL, Maybe when I actually get the Audit done it will all fall into place!!! and hey, we all do reflective practice and don't even notice it so suppose writting it won't be that difficult fingers crossed anyway. thanx again.
