PBIS Tier 1 Team Training

PBIS Tier 1 Team Training

  • Our training and resources are from Missouri School-Wide Positive Behaviour Support(MO SW-PBS)  
  • This training is rigorously researched and updated each year to ensure it is consistent with the most up to date advances in behavioural and implementation science. 
  • We facilitate all our training in conjunction with the MO SW-PBS team, including Dr Tim Lewis (one of the original architects of PBIS).

Due to the uncertainty about Covid in 2022,  all of our professional learning will now be delivered as online modules.

This includes SW-PBIS team training in Tiers 1, 2 and 3, as well as the Effective Teaching and Learning Practices (both for experienced staff and graduates) and Data Based Decision Making training.


Free, 30 minute introduction sessions are available for all training, so school teams can find out a bit more about the content, times and time commitment, who participates and the follow up support available.

Whole School Awareness

A 45 minute session for a whole school staff

Designed to give an overview of what SWPBIS is, and how the training and implementation would roll out.

This session is typically delivered via Zoom to increase flexibility and decrease costs.

Tier 1 Training

Our five day training follows the procedure of SWPBIS, and guides team through the process of designing their Tier 1 intervention before they implement – no more building the plane in flight! Over 5 non-consecutive days in a school year we will help your team to design your behaviour expectations, school-wide matrix, routines and procedures, teaching and acknowledgement systems, and what to do if students make behavioural errors. We will then support your team through the process of launching SWPBIS and provide technical assistance and problem solving as required.

Typically 5 days, over the course of one year.

We can support you with a “pre-start” Zoom session to ensure you have the right team together, and they know what to expect from training.

A representative team (typically between 6 and 10 school staff) will attend 5 days (typically face to face, but there is potential to use online training), in which they will get the knowledge and resources to build all the Tier 1 systems over the course of one school year.

During each training day the team will get a clear idea of what to do and how, to implement each of the Essential Components of SWPBIS. The training is focussed and interactive, with work time within training and a clear list of tasks to complete before the next session.

Schools who have completed this model of training have found they are fully ready to “launch” SWPBIS tier 1 in their school the following year.
