Specific, actionable, and relevant safety training

Protecting staff

This Boundary Training will protect against three factors: unfounded accusations, unintentional mistakes, and misconduct. This course presents the fundamentals of strong boundaries with practical and relatable examples and case studies that speak specifically to your school's culture.

“Continuous improvement is a core value of our organization, and we aim to provide professional development programs that empower our member schools to be more successful. We are thrilled to partner with SOS ThreeSixty, Inc. to offer this important boundary training course which will help our member schools have the best interactions with their students as they strive for exceptional teaching and extraordinary learning opportunities. ”

Associate Director of NWAIS

“At Redeemer Christian School, we seek to serve students with grace and excellence through building strong relationships. The training provided through SOS ThreeSixty’s online “Boundary Training for Schools: Creating a Culture of Safety” program has reinforced our efforts to build healthy and appropriate relationships with our students. The common sense, thorough approach reminded staff and faculty of perennial boundaries while also providing nuanced understanding of some less obvious pitfalls to teacher-student interactions. The training also engendered important questions and conversations for us to wrestle with as we go through the school year. Going forward, SOS ThreeSixty will become a regular and integral part of our safety and cultural training as a school. ”

“I have been in education for more than 25 years and this Boundary Training really did hit the mark (several actually) in a short period of time. Taking this course was quite assuring and humbling regarding the exposure busy independent schools face in our daily student interactions. In 30 minutes this training creates a really healthy balance between responsibility and the privilege of working with young people – all great in my book.”

Deputy Head of School, St. Michaels University School

“We were looking for a program that would engage our staff and build on their safety knowledge and skills. After completing the SOS Three Sixty Boundary Training, so many of my colleagues came up to me and said how strong and effective it was. They felt informed and were able to relate directly to the content and apply it in their everyday interactions with students. This training brings home important messages and gave us such a good vocabulary and framework to sit down together and have meaningful discussions within our school about connecting with our students in a caring and healthy way.”
