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.


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 6 months to complete the course. Each of the three modules will take approximately 3-5 hours to work through. You can choose how much depth to go into and how much time to spend applying the learning to your own context, but you can expect to complete the whole course within 15 hours of study.


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. If you would benefit from a 30 minute online session with a Thrive tutor at any stage, please send an email describing which aspect of the course you would like support with.

Once you have finished all the modules you will be given the opportunity to sign up for the next quarterly online Thrive discussion session. These typically take place in February, May, August and November.

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.
