Hello Rebecca,
  
 You might consider having the level 3 tutor trainees develop the Level 1 and 2 review curriculum (with your oversight, of course). This will not only give them something interesting and meaningful to do, but will also fulfill the CRLA/ITTPC requirement. They can create activities for Level 1 & 2 training as well as quizzes for the earlier levels.
  
 Many Level 3 programs also have their tutors develop promotional materials for the larger college community, introduce tutorial services to classes via brief in-class presentations and implement subject specific FAQs, blogs or online chats for newer, less experienced tutors.
 Here in New England we have the New England Peer Tutor Association (NEPTA) a loosely organized group of professionals in the field that sponsor an annual conference "by tutors, for tutors". We take turns hosting at our institutions, have tutors from that the host school plan the conference and have tutors from the other local colleges submit proposals and present.  We are typically able to get the facility, copying and other expenses donated by the host institution and charge only for the food. We have been offering this conference for close to thirty years. I know other regions now do the same, especially TACT in upstate NY. I am sure there are others.
  
 Hope this information is helpful.
  
 Best,
 Roberta

Yup, they come for training the lower level tutors the day before.  But I like to have a shorter meeting with just the Level  III tutors and struggle to find what we can chat about.

What about spending some or all of that time to train your Level III tutors how to train or mentor other tutors?  Whether they present a training session or serve as a mentor, both experiences look good on a resume and may help tutors see a future in a job as a learning center manager.  Both opportunities also grant credibility and promotion within your staff as tutors gain more experience and become increasingly valuable employees.

I have a beginning of semester training/meeting for Level III tutors to knock out some of their trng hour requirements.  I wanted to know if anyone has any special activities or ideas for that day's events.  I try to make it 3 hours and then do the rest of the training later for them.  This is only my second year doing this for just Level III people so I welcome all ideas.  

Thanks, all.  I love this listserv, so useful.
