What you'll learn

The 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 half-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.
