Student Employment Tutorial (SET) Training

What is SET Training?
SET trainings are one-day or half-day intensive sessions on a topic of interest to student employment professionals everywhere. Created originally for schools within driving distance of the training sites, SET Training can also be offered pre- or post-conference.

A SET Training entitled "Legal Issues in Student Employment" will be conducted October 14, 2016. David Lichtenberg, an attorney with Fisher Phillips and expert in the field, will discuss how labor laws affect student employment. Interested parties will register for this post-conference training via the 2016 NSEA Conference registration form, and pay a nominal fee.

Student Employment Essentials (SEE) Training

What is SEE Training?
Two one-day, professional seminars that will teach you the skills critical to the success of every student employment professional as well as to your university's student employment program. These "hands-on" workshops immerse participants in all aspects of running a successful student employment office and provide a framework for you to sharpen existing skills and acquire new ones.

Expert trainers will provide you with well-researched, practical information you can apply immediately.

NSEA's Student Employment Essentials (SEE) Train-the-Trainer Program

The Student Employment Essentials Train-the-Trainer Program (T-t-T) is normally offered yearly in February for two days.

For those interested in becoming a Student Employment Essentials (SEE) Trainer, applicants must meet the following minimum criteria:

  • Have previously attended both Track A and Track B of SEE training
  • Have at least three years of experience in a student employment or related field
  • Provide a letter of support from the applicant's supervisor
  • Provide a statement of interest outlining skills (including presentation skills/experience), background, and interests

All T-t-T applicants must complete the application and send to their regional Training Coordinator (see above) for nomination. The Regional Training Coordinator will submit the signed applications and letters of support for the candidates selected by the region to the National Training Coordinator by the yearly deadline which is the end of the first full week in January.

All applications will be reviewed by the NSEA SEE Training Review Committee. The National Training Coordinator will notify all participants, Regional SEE Coordinators, and Regional Presidents of the selections by January 15th.

The fee for training is $200 per participant. This fee includes the training and participant materials for both Tracks A and B of Student Employment Essentials and catered meals on the two days of training. Upon completion, each new trainer will receive a certificate indicating that they have been trained by NSEA and may facilitate SEE training sessions within their region.

NSEA is pleased to offer one UPS Train-the-Trainer scholarship to each of the four regions. The scholarship includes not only the $200 registration fee for the Train-the-Trainer program but also up to the current year's budgeted amount towards transportation, hotel room, and other costs associated with attending the training. Each region is responsible for any costs above that amount.
