A calendar template is something you can use to print out your own time management and project planning tools. Schools are in the habit of using activity calendars spanning the whole academic year, listing out the agenda for that year. It is for them, as well as other institutions based on the same structural principle, that this list of annual calendar templates was made for.
In the workplace, you can have planned project calendars. For any other management programs, annual training schedules are ideal. For others, annual calendars are just good ways to track events such as birthdays.
Whatever your situation, if you need any time-sensitive information laid out against the timeline of a year, you will love these free calendar downloads.
The variety in this collection is meant to serve most fields of work that require an annual calendar (i.e., schools and corporations).
There are certain key events in every organization’s year, and usually these events are edited into a custom-made Desk Calendar for office workers, or given out as Monthly Calendar handouts to students.
These are not just useful for events reference and reminders. Some of these templates are examples of how long-term projects (specifically year-long projects) are laid out. This aids in organizing of resources as well as planning and management.
