Fieldtrip Chaperone Training for Schools

The duties and responsibilities of a chaperone are vital to the success and safety of any fieldtrip. 

The chaperone’s primary responsibility is to help ensure the safety of students.

The SOS ThreeSixty Chaperone Training Program is a comprehensive safety training module to prepare chaperones to manage a variety of challenges that may arise on local, overnight, and international trips.

The focus is on avoiding problems through careful planning and proactive management.

Your school’s chaperones will be much better prepared for all trips and will be safety leaders – equipped to protect children from external threats while ensure sound internal abuse prevention practices.

A review of – and suggested enhancements to – your school’s chaperone manual is also included.
