Course overview

Thrive is a dynamic developmental approach to working with all children and young people and especially those who display challenging behaviour, which interrupts their own and others’ learning. This tried and tested approach helps staff in school to understand what may be happening for the children in their setting and what can be done differently to re-engage children with life and learning.

Led by a Thrive Licensed Trainer, this 3-hour interactive virtual training session will introduce all your staff to the fundamentals of the Thrive Approach, giving them an understanding of the underlying principles and concepts used to support the wellbeing of all the children in your setting. The session includes a section dedicated to demonstrating Thrive-Online, our profiling, monitoring and measuring tool.
