From truancy to academic attainment (plus why Northfields chose Thrive)

Connected Podcast Logo

In this episode, we feature Thrive® trainer Sharon Gray and Licensed Practitioner Sam Strange in conversation about what it’s like to undertake Thrive training and the changes it brings personally and professionally. Sam, the Personalised Learning Centre Manager at Northfields School and Sports College, in Stockton-on-Tees, talks about her expectations of the course and how this compared to the reality. 

Listen to learn:

  • How delegates and trainers support each other during Thrive training – and why this makes such a big difference to course outcomes
  • How Sam took what she learned during her training and implemented the Approach in her setting
  • Why Thrive training has had an impact on truancy rates, in particular
  • Why the neuroscience that underlies the Thrive Approach helps teachers to understand and change distressing behaviour
