On the Thrive training pages you can find dates for courses running throughout the year. We also have a team of regional Relationship Managers who are happy to help – meet the regional team here.
Can I complete Thrive training as an individual or do I need to be part of an organisation?
To become a Thrive Licensed Practitioner you will need to be working with children on a regular basis and be able to carry out Thrive-Online assessments to pass the course. We recommend volunteering at a school if this is not possible in your current role.

Is the Thrive Approach part of the THRIVE Framework for system change or the i-THRIVE programme?
No, although the Thrive Approach is one of the wellbeing interventions that localities implementing the THRIVE Framework for system change could adopt to support optimal social and emotional development of children and young people, so reducing the need for more specialist interventions.
The THRIVE Framework for system change (Wolpert et al., 2019) is an integrated, person-centred and needs-led approach to delivering mental health services for children, young people and their families. The Framework was developed by a collaboration of authors from the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families and the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust. It conceptualises need in five categories; Thriving, Getting Advice and Signposting, Getting Help, Getting More Help and Getting Risk Support. Emphasis is placed on prevention and the promotion of mental health and wellbeing across the whole population. Children, young people and their families are empowered through active involvement in decisions about their care through shared decision-making, which is fundamental to this approach.
The National i-THRIVE Programme aims to improve children and young people’s mental health outcomes. This is achieved by supporting localities across the country to implement the THRIVE Framework (as above) using an evidence-based approach to implementation. i-THRIVE was selected as an NHS Innovation Accelerator in 2016 and is now endorsed in the NHS Long Term Plan.
Is Thrive a registered charity?
No, Thrive is not a charity but a business. We believe this is vital to ensuring that Thrive is sustainable. As such, we invest heavily in supporting the latest research programmes, technological developments and evaluation of the impact the Thrive Approach has on children and young people, their settings and the wider community.
