Individual Development Plan

Individual Development Plan (IDP): Edmonds Community College is committed to the development of all employees. Professional Exempt and Classified Staff have IDP forms available for use in planning their professional development. An IDP offers a tool to: 1) analyze your own development needs, set specific short and long term goals and decide which training opportunities best meet those goals, and 2) help you and your supervisor complete your annual Employee Performance Appraisal. Once your IDP is on file in the ODET office, it should be reviewed and updated as part of your annual evaluation process. Having an IDP on file with ODET has the added benefit of permitting you to apply for funding for outside professional development. If you need assistance filling out your form, please contact Chris Hudyma.
