Course overview

This course will refresh your knowledge of the underlying theory and concepts of the Thrive Approach, knowing how to be and what to do with 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 practical activities. These will help you develop a relational stance and help children become ready to learn.

A requisite of this training is that you will need to be an authorised user of Thrive-Online, our profiling, measuring and monitoring tool, with an active subscription.
