After Thrive was introduced at school, we started to notice that the language that was being used was changing, especially amongst support staff. It had a real ripple effect where the staff that hadn't had their Thrive training were curious about what was going on because they had heard from colleagues how effective it was."

Sasha Bune, Assistant Headteacher and SENCO, Grove Road Community Primary School



What you'll learn

The top-up training will:

  • Provide your staff with an opportunity to review the key theories underpinning the Thrive Approach to enable them to support the social and emotional development of all children in your setting
  • Support your setting’s SLT and Thrive licensed practitioners with the process of embedding a whole-school approach to Thrive
  • Support all staff to develop a greater understanding of children’s needs, at both the right-time in their development and where they may have gaps in their earlier development
  • Equip all staff with some basic tools and strategies for supporting any behaviours arising from children’s unmet needs
  • Support all staff to share knowledge and skills across the organisation, promoting staff wellbeing, co-operation, and information-sharing
  • Enable you to tailor the learning to reflect the specific needs of your staff.

Course structure

This one-day top-up training session consists of two set topics: the introduction, comprising the course aims and learning outcomes, and Thrive Essentials, covering underpinning theory.

This is followed by a selection of six short workshops (A–F below) from which you can choose the three that you consider the most relevant and useful to your setting. After the third workshop, there is a final set session to close the day.

You can choose from the following workshops:

A. Making Thrive work in unstructured time
B. Developing a whole-school approach
C. Effective ways of communicating with children
D. The Thinking developmental strand (18 months–3 years)
E. The Power and Identity developmental strand (3–7 years)
F. The Skills and Structure developmental strand (7–11 years)
