Course content

The Thrive Approach promotes positive mental health and emotional wellbeing in children and young people.

Sadly, we all are aware that mental health and wellbeing is a key priority within the educational world today, so improving social and emotional learning is particularly important at this time. Schools are reviewing their core vision and curriculum offer and planning to implement statutory Relationships and Health Education. Careful planning and training are vital to ensure these key skills are integrated through the teaching and learning programme for all pupils.

This 2-hour session will focus on helping you to showcase the impact of the Thrive Approach in your setting, giving you:

  • an awareness and access to the relevant evidence
  • the tools to help you evaluate the impact
  • aligned with the confidence to showcase and model best practice.
