A modularised online personal leadership program for schools that raises aspirations, improves goal planning, motivation and communication
Thrive@School is an innovative and interactive personal leadership program for students in years 9 to 11 to fulfill their SACE Personal Learning Plan (PLP) subject over one term, or longer, with the added benefits of students improving their wellbeing, leadership, enterprise, and communication skills.
This program is built on Youth Opportunities 20+ years practical experience in working with young people. Thrive@School combines extensive research from a broad range of theoretical underpinnings, including motivational theory, cognitive behaviour approaches, social learning theory, and positive psychology.
With multiple delivery options available to suit our partner schools budgets and needs, Thrive@School will support the development of your students while giving them a leading edge in achieving both their educational and personal goals.
Thrive@School can be delivered by a school educator, in a classroom setting, via an online platform, or it can be customised to meet varying student needs and outcomes including with the support of Youth Opportunities delivering the program remotely.
The program and educator resources are designed to enable various levels of blended learning, with suggested opportunities for educator facilitation of group discussion, reflection, knowledge sharing and deeper learning. Each of the concepts are delivered in a module form, and can run as weekly lessons over a semester, or in a more flexible format.
On completion of the full program, students fulfil the SACE PLP requirements and gain 10 SACE points.
The program simplifies the curriculum and evaluation rubrics, providing efficient and effective PLP assessments.
Thrive can be used to enhance, or complement, other PLP and wellbeing programs.
Youth Opportunities provides comprehensive training on the core program concepts to educators, contributing to their own professional development (minimum 6 hours of professional development hours with opportunities for extension).
