* One of the B-plots from Creator/TomClancy's ''[[Literature/JackRyan Executive Orders]]'' has veteran field agent (and resident paramilitary BadAss spook extraordinare) John Clark training a new batch of agents at The Farm to rebuild the CIA's HUMINT[[note]][=HUMan INTelligence=][[/note]] assets (read: agents) after years of downsizing in favor of SpySatellites and other technical intelligence gathering methods. Other books in the series explicitly state that this is his regular job: While he may be the CIA's go-to guy for 007-type missions, ops like that are not done very often.

to:

* In ''Literature/TheInvisibleLibrary'', the first chapter opens with Irene cleaning the floors of a [[OneGenderSchool boy's boarding school]] that is implied to be this. She states that she doesn't think the students need any protection, as they are probably the most dangerous thing there. Since Irene is undercover as a servant in order to steal a book from that school, things get dangerous pretty soon. Irene also mentions that this school reminds her somewhat of the school she herself went to, and throughout the book it is hinted that the curriculum at her old school involved more self-defense than girls tend to be taught at regular schools.

* Large part of Viktor Suvorov's novel 'Literature/{{Aquarium}}' (and subsequent Polish-Russian TV miniseries) focuses on training of new GRU operatives in the secret facilities. Also counts as a RealLife example.

* AlphaProtocol's headquarters features one of these, though it is rather abbreviated as compared to a proper training program. It also has the effect of starting with a drugged recruit awakening. [[JustifiedTutorial It primarily exists to serve as a tutorial]], [[spoiler: thought the same path will again be repeated in the final mission.]]

* ''{{Discworld}}'' has the Assassins' Guild School, although it plays with the trope. Not all students actually become assassins; the school was where nobles sent their children on the principle that you had to think like an assassin if you wanted to avoid being killed by them, and then, because so many nobles were invested in it, it became the most prestigious school in Ankh-Morpork and now has graduates who "probably had a note from their mother saying they were excused from stabbing."
