Do you want to take your Thrive practice to the next level? Are you looking for ways to use Thrive to reach more of the children in your setting? Would you like to work more closely with parents and carers but lack the tools you need to do it?
If so, then Course Leader for Family Thrive could be the course for you. This intensive three-day blended learning course will equip you with the skills and resources you need to run a six-session Family Thrive programme for groups of parents and carers in your setting. The purpose of this programme is to share the key principles of the Thrive Approach with parents and carers in an accessible way so that they are better able to understand and support the work that you are doing in your setting. For this reason, the Family Thrive programme is particularly suitable for settings that have adopted a whole setting approach to Thrive.
During the course, you will learn about the content of the Family Thrive programme and how to deliver it effectively to groups of parents and carers.
The course involves the following elements:
2 x E-Learning Modules, 4 x 3hr Webinars and 1 x 30 minute E-Mentoring Session
