Helping your students and school to Thrive!

The online program is facilitated by your staff, with flexibility to be delivered to an entire cohort or selected groups over one term or longer. Thrive@School will not only help your school improve student outcomes and school culture, but in SA fulfills a SACE Personal Learning Plan (PLP) subject, and has the added benefits of your students receiving 10 SACE points.

Why do schools choose Thrive@School?

The Thrive@School Online Personal Leadership Program is a cost-effective way to universally improve the academic, attendance and wellbeing outcomes of your students – and ultimately positively impact your school culture.

The program simplifies the curriculum and evaluation rubrics, providing efficient and effective PLP assessments. On completion of the full program, students in South Australia fulfill the SACE PLP requirements and gain 10 SACE points. It can also be used to enhance, or complement, other PLP, enterprise skill development, and wellbeing programs.

As an added benefit, Youth Opportunities provides comprehensive training on the core program concepts to educators, contributing to their professional development (providing a minimum of 6 hours of professional development with opportunities for extension).

And finally, your school will be provided with an end of program report measuring student wellbeing outcomes and academic attainment of their Personal Learning Plan.

How is it delivered?

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.

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.

An evidence based program backed by 25 years of successful delivery

The Thrive@School Online Personal Leadership Program is built on Youth Opportunities’ 25 years of practical experience in working with young people. Thrive Online combines extensive research from a broad range of theoretical underpinnings, including motivational theory, cognitive behaviour approaches, social learning theory, and positive psychology.

The things I learnt in Thrive will set me up for life. They were simple concepts, but no one ever took the time to explain how important they were before.
