Forgot to ask this earlier... which email address you have the quick access? Would this be fine communicating to your official id?

Great! you have a test email in your inbox. Do let me know the training names and dates in an excel along with their scheduled hours, or any other related information.
I would also appreciate if you can draft a rough so that you can have a better understanding over the final sheet.

The real trick in framing a training calendar is to get to the real needs of employees and managers. A common complaint I hear at the end of the year is HR staffs spending a lot of time and resources delivering a calendar with hardly anyone turning up to the various sessions.

Be careful to focus on real training needs and not training "wants". Yes, ask supervisors, managers and employees what training they feel they need. But don't stop there. Here are some other important sources of information for you to examine as you construct your organization's training calendar:

-employee performance appraisal documents

-organization’s strategic planning documents

-organization/department operational plans

-organization/department key performance indicators

-customer complaints

-critical incidents

-quality data

I have more information on assessing training needs at http://www.businessperform.com/workplace-training/training_needs_analysis.html Make sure that every item you put on the calendar is going to return more to the organization than it costs.

As you compile and format your training calendar, think carefully about the information that needs to be presented. There is no fixed format for a calendar; however, the calendar should answer the following questions:

What training is being delivered – title, description

When is the training being delivered – date, time, frequency, duration

Where is the training being delivered – location

How is the training being delivered – delivery mode: lecture, workshop, elearning

Why is the training being delivered – learning outcomes/competencies delivered

Who is delivering the training – internal trainer, external vendor

And don’t forget to include details on how to register and contact details.

I trust this helps.

Hi. Shweta,
Please see the attached file which may help you. Actually every year we take a target of 30 training hours per employee. You need to change the training needs suitable to your organisation.

Dear Shweta...
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.!!

Dear All, Thank you so much for your valuable suggestions.Keep on suggesting and helping me out for framing the training calender. Once again thanks to all. Regards, Shweta Singh

hi Shweta,
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.
