Thrive Lite

Thrive Lite is a free online course of self-directed study for those based in Scotland. Thrive Lite is particularly suited to those who may have a part-time or volunteer role in using physical activity or sport to make a difference.

Sign up for the autumn 2021 round of Thrive Lite here.


Thrive Lite covers the same content as the full Thrive Training course, but in less depth. It has the same 3 module structure: PLAN, DO, REVIEW with a focus on developing a person-centred approach.


You will have 3 weeks to complete each module, so you will complete the course in about two and a half months. Each module will take approximately 3-5 hours to work through. There is 1 hour webinar at the end of each module.


Thrive Lite has been created in an online learning platform. Course materials are presented in a variety of ways, including:

  • text
  • quizzes
  • videos
  • assignments
  • downloadable templates and handouts.

Throughout the course there are opportunities to apply what you are learning to your own context.

I wish you every success as you continue to look at new ways to share THRIVE with others. It is such a vital toolkit to better equip our workforce to consider and measure the impact of sport and physical activity on individuals and communities – Changing Lives. Will be even more important now as organisations and clubs will have to reconsider what they are doing to better respond to the pandemic.
