Re-designing your current training

Is it too exhausting or intensive for your staff members?
Are presentations time effective?
Are presentations engaging and relevant to their positions?
Are you conducting assessments of your training?
“This year’s training was the best I have been a part of. I think it allowed for more free time to complete tasks as well as time to breathe and take in information from the sessions. “- 4th year Gryphon
“As a returning Gryphon I really appreciated this years training because it was condensed and I still learned all I needed for my job. “- 2nd year Gryphon
“Training was great this year because it allowed me to get to know my staff members better because we had more time to hang out that wasn’t forced.”
- 2nd year GryphonSlide8
“This year was my 1st year of being a Gryphon and I wouldn’t change anything about training. I feel that I had a lot of time with my staff as well as the entire group.”- 1st year Gryphon
“This years training rocked because it was organized better than before, and I liked the concept of the theme, and liked working around that theme throughout training.”- 2nd year Gryphon
“I liked how each Head Gryphon was given materials similar to the professional staff so we were all on the same page, and could assist Gryphons when they needed help.”
- 2nd year Head GryphonSlide9
Begin to re-design your training by creating a list of MUST-HAVES:
Examples can include: interactive training sessions, limit to session length (30
), handouts, rotating sessions to keep students moving, shorter days, increased group interaction, shorter training length.
Begin to work out your schedule.
Rotating small group sessions keep groups small, and get more presentations into the schedule.
Try the option of a resource fair for those offices not directly related to the students job responsibilities
Allow enough time between sessions/travel
Social Media IntegrationSlide10
Training should be fun!
Theme for training
Free giveaways each day
Staff challenge or competition
Door Decoration contest
Bulletin Board Contest
Begin to re-create your training
Go through previous training and see if there are sessions you can eliminate, condense, or allow to be part of a resource fair.
Group sessions of similar topics together
Integration of institutions developmental competencies infused into training
All sessions limited to either 30 or 45 minute sessions. (Special exception for 2 – 60 min sessions – in our training)
Presenters are asked to be engaging, energetic, and interactive.
Increase in-hall time and individual staff time
Free day in the middle of training
Total of 6 day training, 3 days shorter than last yearSlide12

Assessments of training this year concluded:
Students enjoyed the condensed training structure
Students felt they had more time to interact as a whole as well as individual staffs
Students felt adequately prepared for students to arrive
Students were not exhausted at the end of training, but were energized
Students stayed actively engaged during training
Team building activities/competitions/prizes helped keep student interest
Some training sessions can be combined next year or integrated into in-hall trainings
Session structure and overall schedule will stay close to current model to maximize student engagement
The re-design of the training model was a successSlide15
