Pre Training Planning

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

One of the first and most important steps in pre-training planning is to identify and agree on roles and responsibilities before posts are even filled. Terms of reference should also be drawn for the following set of roles:
MANAGEMENT:
• Programme Manager
• Training Coordinator
• Administrative Assistant

MATERIALS DEVELOPMENT:
• Curriculum Developer
• Content Specialist
• Curriculum Writer
• Curriculum Editor
• Graphic Designer

TRAINING:
• Training Facilitators
• Training Co-Facilitators

The Training Coordinator, on the other hand, could be someone in the counter-part agency or the organisation targeted by the training and/or based in the country where the training is planned. These two are different from the Lead Material Development Specialist (also known as Curriculum Developer), who in some cases could be a hired consultant. The Administrative Assistant is a self-explanatory term and someone who reports to the Training Coordinator and is responsible for the details of training admin and logistics.
