Course Outcomes

This course will equip you with the knowledge and understanding you need to respond to today’s challenges, from loud disruptors to quietly disengaged pupils. Build your confidence and skillset to maintain a calm, productive classroom in an increasingly complex world. 

"We don't have children exiting classrooms and there's not the same behaviour that means they are missing out on learning. The data speaks for itself about the impact of Thrive on our school."

Who is it for?

Ideal for all teachers, support staff and ITT students.
Teachers increasingly report spending too much time on behaviour management in the classroom – often with limited positive impact. This course seeks to change that.

"We have seen academic progress improve and the number of emotional disregulations has halved, much of which is due to our commitment to Thrive principles, because of the relationships it helps to build between staff and pupils."




Thrive has given us strong, positive relationships with the children. It helped us to maintain these relationships throughout the pandemic, whether children were at school or at home. I can honestly say now that the relationship we have with them has never felt stronger because of Thrive."

Lisa Kelly, Thrive Licensed Practitioner, Perry Wood Primary and Nursery School


What you'll learn

Understanding how the brain develops during childhood and adolescence enables educators to support pupils more effectively as they grow.

This course will equip you with the knowledge and understanding you need to maintain a calm, productive classroom. This includes information about what causes poor behaviour, the latest thinking on different types of behaviour – and critically what you can do about it. We will explore positive behaviour strategies to help you respond in the moment and dive into how to improve behaviour in the classroom long term.

Course structure

The course is structured into two virtual training sessions, each three hours long:

Session 1: Understanding behaviour

Lots of things may be happening in a child or teenagers brain when they act out. In this session you will learn how to decode their actions and identify underlying causes, putting you back in the driving seat and ready to respond effectively. Uncover the neuroscience behind pupil behaviour and strengthen your ability to consciously create relationships of trust, dignity and support with your pupils.

Session 2: Responding to behaviour
In this session we draw together the latest neuroscience and evidence of what works in behaviour management to give you a straightforward roadmap for success in the classroom. Discover practical ways to implement the best practice principles set out by Behaviour Hubs, the Education Endowment Foundation's '6 recommendations for improving behaviour in schools' and the Children and Young People's Mental Health Coalition's 'Behaviour and Mental Health in Schools' report in practice.

By the end of the Positive Behaviour Management training, you will be equipped with new tips, tools and techniques to address changing behaviour patterns in the classroom using a shame-sensitive, non-judgemental approach.
