Initially conceived as a way of tackling the issue of school exclusions, Thrive now offers a whole-setting approach to support the right-time social and emotional development of all children and young people.
The Thrive Approach consists of Thrive-Online, a web-based assessment and monitoring tool, and training. Thrive training focuses on the emotional needs of different age groups informed by established neuroscience and attachment research, as well as child development studies and research into risk and resilience factors.
Thrive HQ is based in Devon in the UK, with supporting offices in Melbourne Australia and Arrowtown, New Zealand. To date, more than 34,000 staff have received Thrive training, ensuring that around 400,000 children have access to the Thrive Approach, changing lives and increasing educational attainment levels.
