Rhode Island has developed a common Individual Professional Development Plan (IPDP) form to help early learning educators create IPDPs for their professional growth and improvement. IPDPs include specific, concrete professional development goals based on an educator’s own self-reflection of her current knowledge and competencies in the six domains of Rhode Island’s Workforce Knowledge and Competency Frameworks (WKCs) for early learning educators. Click here to learn more about and access the WKCs.
Select the Word or PDF version of the form that is appropriate for your current position. Once you open the form, be sure to follow the instructions on page 1. You can complete the form electronically and save the IPDP to your computer. Or, if you prefer, you can print the form and complete it by hand. Be sure to use one set of goal sheets for each goal in your IPDP, and print additional goal sheets if you need them. All PDFs require the free Adobe Reader.
