Understanding what behaviour of children is actually communication will help you to engage children with life and learning. Ultimately, this will result in better outcomes for all children.
The Thrive Licensed Practitioner course for primary school aged children will introduce you to the Thrive Approach. It will show you how to be and what to do in response to children’s varying, and often complex, social and emotional needs. The course will demonstrate how Thrive-Online, our mapping, measuring and monitoring tool, can be used to profile whole classes and individual children, and to identify strategies and action plans that will support healthy emotional and social development. You will also be presented with a raft of practical activities. These will help you develop a relational stance and help children become ready to learn.
Thrive is the whole package – a great online framework to work from, backed up scientifically and developmentally. Simple, straightforward, easy to adopt yet highly effective.
