Thriving Lives CPD Webinar Series

The Thriving Lives CPD webinar series is aligned to the principles of the Thriving Lives Toolkit. The toolkit has been developed by the SCiP Alliance as a tool to help schools in England with their support for young service children.

Underpinned by rigorous research, the toolkit provides a framework of 7 principles through which schools can reflect on their practice.

The Thriving Lives webinar series is a collaborative programme led by the University of Portsmouth, Arts University Bournemouth and the University of Winchester. The CPD series will:

  • Showcase best practice case studies from schools 
  • Highlight regional providers that can work with schools to deliver on the Thriving Lives principles
  • Help to connect schools, partners and providers regionally
