Training Interns will assist in designing and overseeing the use of training programs within a NCAAU/SCAAU. Interns will constantly look for and apply new ways to help the organization, clubs, coaches and athletes better develop and harness their skills.
In order to best prepare the organization for success, Training Interns rely on a wide range of interpersonal and leadership skills.
The Training Intern’s first job is understanding the current strengths and weaknesses of a organization. This could involve a variety of assessment methods, such as surveys, focus groups, meeting with various members of the company and assessing the company’s reputation overall.
Design Training Plans
Next, the Training Intern must assist in designing training regimes to help clubs, coaches and athletes overcome any current weaknesses and teach additional skills, to keep the organization competitive and efficient. This includes managing operational budgets.
Interns will assist in managing or directing Training
Training Interns either teach the desired coursework themselves, or assess the teaching abilities of organization members. In either case, Training Interns must make sure the course covers the required needs and that the desired principles and skills are being taught in the most learnable ways possible. This includes fostering a ‘culture of learning’ within AAU.
Evaluate Results of Training
Training Interns will assist in assessing their latest performance levels to ensure the members adequately learned the desired lessons and skills. This includes making sure the members are always complying with regulations and standards, as well evaluating the training program, instructors or materials to find better or less expensive ways to teach members in the future.
Research Training Methods
Training Interns should constantly be on the lookout for new training programs or social studies presenting more effective ways to teach. This includes looking for new approaches to teaching the desired skills or attributes, and designing more efficient teaching practices. This includes maintaining communication with the organization on every level, in order to recognize new issues and plan for additional training.
