Category: labels that describe what skills and knowledge areas the session addresses (e.g., diversity, project management, team building, leadership skills)



Focus or Goals of this Guide:

Brief Outline:

Brief summary statement (describing the activities) aimed at the user/trainer/facilitator. The main purpose of this section is to give the facilitator an ideas about the main structure and emphasis of the training. This should be followed by outline of suggested steps or summary description of contents.


The outline has the following parts (modify to cover number):


  1. Activity suggested time x minutes

Followed by Handouts

It’s best to put your handouts at the end of the trainer guide, so that they do not get lost in the shuffle of emails or binders. Try to establish and use a consistent “look and feel” for all handouts. That is, use the same fonts, typefaces, margins, graphical consistency, etc.


You can put page breaks between the guide and subsequent handouts to keep it orderly.


Oftentimes, handouts contain critical content for the workshop. We suggest that you put that content into the trainer guide as well (e.g., don’t simply say “refer to the handout”) because (1) it will ensure that the presenters have the content if the handouts get lost; (2) it reinforces preparation for the facilitator; and (3) it allows you to build in helpful suggestions to facilitators about how to present the content on the handouts, such as in suggested script.
