Goals Logic for investing in Trainer development For state leadership teams developing action plan For individuals identified as state trainers (or state trainer to be) Core Trainer Skills/ Competencies Sustaining Trainer Capacity Practical Example of how this is done in Michigan
Leadership Team Funding Visibility Political Support TrainingCoachingEvaluation Active Coordination Local School and District Teams/Demonstrations Behavioral Expertise Policy
Role and commitment of trainers Collaboration with Leadership Team Provide overview presentations on SWPBS Help form clusters of 5+ teams (within district, region) for training Team with full representation Coach Local administrative support and funding Deliver training to coaches and teams Typically 4-6 days of on-site training (year 1); 2-4 days (year 2) Collaborate on evaluation Data collection, summary, use in decision-making Collaborate with national network
Trainer Skills/FTE Knowledgeable about core content of SWPBS Active experience as coach or team member in a school that has implemented SWPBS to criterion Presentation skills Use of PowerPoint, Video, Evaluation Tools Use of assessment and evaluation data Social skills Time and ability to sustain implementation support (.10-.50 FTE) Train in pairs: Most Team/Coach training should be delivered by two Trainers. Build/sustain relationships with coaches and teams.
Activity: Rate your current skills/knowledge. Select 2 top requirements worthy of focus.

Four Broad Considerations for Trainers Know who you should be training Know how to organize training material Know how to deliver instruction Know how to assess if you were effective.
Who should you be Training? Organize to train 5-10 teams together All teams include administrator Teams should include an identified coach Clarify “internal” coach versus “external” coach Teams should have a representative who has heard overview of SW-PBS Teams should enter training with understanding of commitment Multiple Days of training over two years Expectation that team meets at least every 2 weeks 80% of faculty supporting effort
Organizing Training Material: Building your curriculum Always start by first defining what you want people to know and do differently as a function of training Then, build a strategy for determining if you were successful. Outcome measure(s) Develop presentation content and activities: Initial presentation can be didactic All other presentations should deliver no more than 30 min before application event (activity) Increase rate of application events to build fluency.
Organizing Training Material: Building your curriculum How to use the Training Materials Materials to pass out to participants Assessment tools PowerPoint slides Research References Focus on the Outcomes Review the “key ideas” Adapt the material to your personal experience
Training Content Pre: CoachesCoaches role and content overview Day 1: Coach and Team Defining the main ideas of SW-PBS Establishing Commitment Implementation Process/ Action Planning Day 2: Coach and Team Non-classroom Settings Using Data for Decision-Making Day 3: Coach and Team Classroom; Bully Prevention within SWPBS; Targeted Interventions Day 4: Coach and Team Additional Individual student interventions Preparing for sustained implementation Team Reports/ Systems Change

Delivering training Establish credibility and connection * Engage participants within first 10 min Define the main ideas Present (a) ideas, (b) logic, (c) supporting evidence, documentation, examples. Tie session ideas to overall SW-PBS ideas Activities to establish outcome behaviors and build fluency Opportunities for elaboration, clarification and revision (questions, examples from teams) Tie content to published research
