Diary of a Games Maker – The Training Continues

The training continues.  I attended a day of Role Specific Training in late March. This covered subjects which could generally be described as customer services, eg communications and team-working. Most of the discussions and exercises were conducted in teams. It was a long day but the trainers made it interesting and fun. It included a team exercise at the end when we were outside (thankfully, it was a fine day)! The catering was good too, with soup, sandwiches, fruit/yoghurt etc for lunch. We’re wondering if the choice of food available for us during shifts at our venues will be wider than that of some of the sponsors’ products (eg McDonalds, Coca-Cola and Cadbury.

It was interesting that  many of the participants had not been to the orientation sessions, even though there were several thousand at each event. But with the overall numbers involved, I guess it was probably impossible to cram everyone into the two weekends and indeed for so many people to get to London for them.     We fledgling Games Makers now await dates for collection of uniforms and the on-site training and indeed, actual dates/shifts.
