It depends on the player. Here's an example from my save:

View attachment 368357

This is a product of my youth academy and, as such, I'm keen on training him up to first-team status. My intention is to turn him in to an Advanced Forward, although I might drop/incorporate other attributes as my tactics demand. Advanced Forward is the general direction though. So, on the training page...

View attachment 368358

Using the drop-down list in the top right ("Area") I've highlighted all the key attributes for the Advanced Forward position and displayed my player's progress in each of them. Since he arrived in my Youth Academy I've had him on heavy training, specifically targeting Dribbling, Composure and Pace. This is how much they have increased in that time:

As you can see, all three attributes started at either 9 or 11 and are now at 14, 14 and 15. After I get Composure to 15 I will increase Off the Ball to 16 and then dump the remaining points in to Crossing (or enough to get it to 14. If I have any left I will put them in Passing).

In addition to all this, my General Training is to set Balanced and Low. This is so I can put all my players on highly specialised training like this at a heavy intensity. Sometimes players complain about their training (I perform check-ups on every player's progress/regime on the first of each month) but in those cases I have a word with the player and say "you need to step up your training or else lose your place". Only one player ever gave me grief about this but eventually he too began to respond with "you're right".

And that's basically it.

I like the concept of the universal player so my training is always like this

CB - Ball Playing Defender or Libero (train sweeper)
FB - Full Back
Midfielder - Box To Box Midfielder ( move offensive) or Central Midfielder ( more defensive)
Winger - If they can play centrally Central Midfielder or Defensive Winger
Striker - Complete Forward

It depends what value the attribute starts on. With the three I highlighted, I left them for about five months at a time each until the values had climbed to ~14. I tend to look at it that way rather than working to a schedule. I look at an attribute that's not good enough, decide on the value I'd like it to be and wait until it's there. If I leave it for ages and there's little to no progress then I'll change but I'm usually quite patient.

All of this is mixed in with as much game-time as I can muster. I never loan players out (because then somebody else with inferior staff/facilities is deciding what to train them as) but I do let them play all the friendlies, cup, easy league games then I can risk. If I can't justify starting them then I'll at least put them on the bench and try to give them 20 minutes (long enough to get a match rating).

I think it's working too. I haven't bought a non-regen for six seasons now and have just won the league for the fifth time in a row.
