Training and Development has been my area of interest and specialization. I have been handling Training and Development of 100+ organisations.
To start with it, you need to review the KRA / KPA of the employees. These things would directly affect their appraisals for next year. So they should feel that the training and development program arranged by employers is useful.
Secondly, take up a need analysis, or a small research ( Via - Questionnaire, or survey) that will help you out that in which areas employees need training.
Then, you may design training programs on like twice a month (On Fridays of Saturdays) or as per your convenience.
The most important thing should be the linking aspects of the training programs - A proper linked should be setup for the past training program and the future training program.
In this way you can design up the calendar.
If you have any further doubts, feel free to get back to me.!!

For framing a training calendar you should always keep in your mind that your calendar speaks about your identified training's. the calendar should focus on learning outcomes, objectives of the program, what topics are going to be covered, what will be the duration and who are the targeted audience. once you prepared a manual on this you can divide your training programs into 4 main quarters.
Most important you can divide your calendar into 2 main areas : technical and behavioral. for technical training's you can take the inputs from performance appraisals,direct discussions with supervisors,interviews with employees. and for behavioral you can add training's like time management & effect of absenteeism, Induction program, team building,Self Development for Better quality of Life,what are the important traits of employees,Improving Communication & Interpersonal Effectiveness etc etc.
