How to THRIVE logoWe are specialists in training schools to help their children and young people be resilient. All our work is based on research evidence and years of experience of working with schools and young people.

We are a non-profit entity currently located within HCC and we work in partnership with schools across the UK, developing solutions with them that answer the challenges they and their students face.

Over the next few months How to Thrive will be hosting a range of training courses designed for professionals to model and teach emotional resilience, all aimed at equipping students with the resilience skills to make the most of opportunity and unlock potential;

Parents Under Construction

The Parents Under Construction lessons will enhance student knowledge of parenting responsibilities, the demands and the cost of being a parent. Students explore the connection between parent behaviour and the impact on a child in terms of their mental health and self-esteem.

During the lessons students learn how to apply a wide range of positive discipline techniques and then explore the benefits of positive reinforcement and encouragement.

Date: Thursday 9th February 2017
Venue: Hertfordshire Development Centre, Robertson House, Six Hills Way, Stevenage, Herts, SG1 2FQ


.breathe is a brand new, six lesson curriculum that introduces students to Mindfulness practice.

We offer this curriculum in partnership with the Mindfulness in Schools Project for trained PRP Teachers.

The simple act of stopping and breathing forms the kernel of six interactive lessons that have been taught successfully in schools across the UK. If you are a certified PRP teacher and you want to introduce your students to Mindfulness then this training is for you.

The next training date will be Monday 23rd January 2017. To express an interest in the training contact us

The PRP is 18 evidenced based lessons aimed at 11-14 year olds (although is applicable for older and younger age groups). The PRP teaches resilience skills in a practical, useful and relevant way, appropriate to the classroom and non-school settings. The highly regarded curriculum offers a set of skills that underpin the way your students will cope with setbacks and make the most of opportunities both in school and as life skills beyond school.
