Register for the online version which will allow you have multiple users completing the toolkit together for your school. You can print a report at any time.

Underpinned by rigorous research and thoroughly tested in school, the Thriving Lives Toolkit provides schools with a framework of 7 principles through which to reflect on their practice and a 3 tier set of CPD resources. The resources in this toolkit have been developed in collaboration with a range of partners across the UK, and consist of:

  • an introductory animation;
  • a detailed resource introducing the evidence base, what schools can do to support their Service children and who can help and;
  • school case studies.

Please click on the individual principles below to find our training modules and case studies.

During 2021-22, the Alliance has been funded by the Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust to work with partners across the UK to enhance the toolkit. The International Centre for Guidance Studies at the University of Derby has carried out further research and an impact evaluation, resulting in an updated toolkit, including a version in Welsh. We are delighted that this funding has also enabled the Alliance to commission an online version of the toolkit.


This toolkit is underpinned by rigorous research.
