Elaboration of the training agenda

The training curriculum defines the following:

course objectives

topics to be covered and their respective learning objectives

training methodologies

duration of the course

target audience

course schedule

The training curriculum establishes the framework by which you will develop your course materials, identify appropriate speakers, and set up the timing of your course.

It will also help you to determine how much it will cost to develop and deliver the training course.

• Course objectives

Why am I here?

What benefits will I receive?

Which of my needs will be met?

What is expected of me?

• Topics

The training agenda should list what subjects will be covered and the objectives to be achieved.

Topics can be divided by modules and sub-topics can be identified within each module.

• Length of workshop or course

Pay special attention to the timing demands of the intended audience:

Will they have to travel?

When will they be able to arrive?

Can they take the whole week off from their jobs?

Will they be able to work at night?

Will they be able to extract themselves from their daily responsibilities and focus exclusively on the course?

• Target audience

Specify who the workshop is intended for:

What is their background/experience?

What is the appropriate size of the group?

Should the group be homogeneous?

How much time can they commit?

Who will authorize their participation?

• Timing

What are the dates the course will take place?

At what time does each module begin and end?

Allocate time for coffee breaks, meals, cigarette breaks or other breaks depending on audience needs.

If you do not allow people time to take care of their personal needs you will notice a significant decline in their attention levels.

Modification of Materials

Making adjustments before training

To channel some persons into other training programs?

To adjust the course material?

Additional exercises for higher skilled attendees?

Making quick adjustments during training

To use warm-up exercises («ice-breakers»)?

Changes must reflect requirements of the content, audience and/or situation rather than instructor preferences

Changes — must make sense and must be appropriate

Substitute local cases, critical incidents, information, data, and experiences

If there is need for major changes — postpone the training

Judging the appropriateness and adequacy of any adjustment

Are the objectives still being met?

Did the adjustments solve the problem or improve the training?

Are the adjustments positively or negatively affecting learners?

Is there still a match with the training site?

Costing Issues

Training assignments budgets must be based upon estimated attendance, with a sufficient reserve to allow for the unexpected.

It may be helpful to work with an training assignments budget committee to prepare the training budget and monitor expenditures. The budget should be based on anticipated revenues, such as registration fees, and estimated expenditures, such as the venue rental, printing of materials, and mailings. Use registration figures and the expenses from past training assignments to guide your planning.
