Partnership Pathway for Schools and Organisations

This pathway supports schools and school leaders who want to strengthen wellbeing in their communities by providing positive transition support. We help parents and educators seek, find and join schools that are building  transition programs by awarding and showcasing best-practice and by putting Chapter Schools ‘on the map’. We also help school administrators reach their strategic goals and access training and talented professionals in the area of transition.

There are four Partnership Pathways:

SPAN Partner 

Make a one-time or annual contribution to support SPAN’s mission and the cause of positive transition support and training in schools. We will recognize your Partner status for the academic year during which the gift is received.         


  • Gold Partner EUR 5,000+

  • Silver Partner EUR 2,500+

  • Bronze Partner EUR 500+

  • Honorary FREE

SPAN Sponsor

Sponsor specific SPAN activities and services. SPAN will recognize Sponsors within the program you choose to support. 


Sample sponsorship opportunities:

  • 'The Nest' episode Sponsor (EUR 250)

  • 'The Nest' Spotlight or Showcase Episode (EUR 500)

  • Premium 'The Nest' Series Sponsor (EUR 5000)

SPAN Chapter School

Chapter schools or organizations have 10+ individual SPAN members among faculty/staff/admin/parents/employees on a single campus in a single academic year (not pooling from a school or organizational network). 


Schools initiate their Chapter School status by submitting a one page School Profile one month after the school year begins, using a downloadable SPAN template. On it, they identify their 10 SPAN Members and offer a bullet-point outline of current transition activities. They may also submit an optional transition philosophy statement. Chapter Schools will also produce a Transitions Progress Report at the end of the school year. 

SPAN Showcase School

These schools model exemplary transition experiences & programs that are: 

  • aligned with SPAN training, research and criteria for excellence

  • nominated by members

  • showcased in 'The Nest' 

  • recognized in the Newsletter/Website

While building showcase level programs, schools can always engage with SPAN through our optional Training & Consulting pathway. This will deepen and align existing practice with the SPAN model.


Regardless, Showcase Schools use SPAN standards to select which practices and results they choose to highlight and share in 'The Nest'. They may first be nominated to Spotlight a Practice in 'The Nest'.
