Thriving Through Change

The Thriving Through Change project is designed to support the education sector in further developing sustainable systems and practices which minimise the impact of transitions on children and young people’s emotional wellbeing and educational success. 

The Thriving Through Change project is designed to support the education sector in further developing sustainable systems and practices which minimise the impact of transitions on children and young people’s emotional wellbeing and educational success.  

The project will focus on embedding transition into school life. This will build resilience and the capacity for children and young people to embrace significant events and change. It aims to help develop understanding that transition is a universal process with key events and groups requiring some differentiation. The strategy will encourage settings and schools to commit to the principle: transition is everyone’s responsibility.
