Welcome to CSEA Education and Training!
Single Subject Training
CSEA can help you meet your staff development/training needs. Whether you’re a district HR administrator, a manager, or a CSEA member leader, CSEA can provide trainings that are specifically designed for classified employees represented by CSEA.
Why does CSEA provide trainings and staff development?
The mission of CSEA is to improve the lives of our members, students, and community. CSEA believes that professional growth is critical to improving members’ lives. We also believe that you cannot have professional growth without personal growth—development on both levels benefits the employee, the employer, and the people who live and work in the community. CSEA is committed to building the capacity of our members to thrive in their workplace and in their union.
What trainings does the Education and Training Department offer?
The Education and Training Department offers a variety of trainings to build members’ capacity and enhance their workplace relations with other staff and students. These three hour trainings can be requested by member leaders or by employers of CSEA members and are available for district in-service days and at the chapter level.
Who are the Trainers?
Both Member and Staff Trainers are knowledgeable and highly skilled presenters. They bring personal expertise and relevant experience that result in superb trainings.
Member Trainers: The member trainers belong to the Trainers’ Bureau, which is a component of the Member Skill Enhancement Program. Those in the Trainers’ Bureau have completed a rigorous selection process, have been appointed to the Bureau by the Association President, and have been fully trained and certified in the curriculum they deliver.
Staff Trainers: The staff trainers research and write all of the educational programs specifically for classified staff. They also use adult-learning methods to ensure that the trainings “stick”. The result is that the programs are instructive, interactive, and fun.
How do I request a training?
The Training Request Form should be completed and returned to CSEA a minimum of six weeks before the date of training.
A separate form should be completed for each date of training requested.
After training requests have been approved, an Education and Training Department representative will arrange training logistical details by phone.
I’m not sure which program would meet our needs.
