i-THRIVE Academy

Providing training to facilitate delivery of i-THRIVE

The i-THRIVE Academy supports sites to develop their workforce so that staff have the right skills to deliver care aligned to the principles of the THRIVE Framework and aligned to objectives in Future in Mind and the Long Term Plan.

We have five practice development modules available to sites to purchase to support local implementation of the THRIVE Framework. These can be delivered individually or in sequence according to local need.

The i-THRIVE Academy Modules


In development: ‘Whole System Stakeholder Engagement and Action Planning’ and ‘Whole System Leadership’.

 i-THRIVE Academy: Impact

The i-THRIVE Academy was successfully piloted in March and April 2017 to over 200 professionals from 30 CCGs.

The modules were developed over the course of 2016 in collaboration with THRIVE authors and leaders in the field of children and young people’s mental health based on the core competencies needed to work in a THRIVE like way and where there were gaps in existing training provision.



Participants in the i-THRIVE Academy pilots reported that the content of all modules was extremely relevant to current practice with an average rating of 4.39 out of a possible 5.
