Re-designing your current training


your current training model

Are staff members satisfied by the 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?

Focus Groups?




“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 Gryphon



“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 Gryphon


Re-designing Training

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 Integration


Training should be fun!

Theme for training

Free giveaways each day


Staff challenge or competition

Banner Contest

Door Decoration contest

Bulletin Board Contest

Spirit Award

Lip Sync

Social Media


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 year

Final Conclusions

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 success
