Thrive is a Group Coaching Forum for early career teachers to help them move beyond merely surviving in their first five years towards really thriving and making their careers productive, enjoyable and sustainable. 

This information is for those who would like to join or host one of our Hubs.

If you would like to discuss a face-to-face program run in-house at your school please contact us.

Having worked with hundreds of Early Career Teachers over the past few years, we understand the major challenges that lead to as many as 50% of our new teachers leaving the profession in their first five years. 

We have developed Thrive in Your First Five to address these challenges and empower Early Career Teachers to thrive.

Regular Sessions Through the Year

Twice a Term your cohort will gather after school for 2 hours in a facilitated workshop to support and learn with each other.

Responsive & Practical

We are committed to responding to your real-life challenges with practical strategies that will help you thrive in & out of the classroom

Small & Supportive

Our cohorts are kept small to ensure all participants have an engaging and immersive experience.

Outside of School Hours

Our cohorts meet after school to ensure you can engage fully in our program without the need for casuals.
