What is an Individual Development Plan?

An Individual Development Plan (IDP) is a tool to assist employees in career and personal development. Its primary purpose is to help employees reach short and long-term career goals, as well as improve current job performance. An IDP is not a performance evaluation tool or a one-time activity. It should be looked at like a partnership between the employee and the supervisor. It involves preparation and continuous feedback.

How do I create an IDP?

There is a job aid on the Resource Center that walks you through the entire process of how to upload your IDP into eLMS.

Steps to the Career Planning Tool (CPT) supporting your Individual Development Plan (IDP) - This Job Aid leads the user through the thought processes, actions, and active hyperlinks to create an IDP, using the CPT resources and tools.

Can I download the IDP form without logging into eLMS?

Yes, you can download the form for general FAA use here.

If you work for ATO, their Line of Business (LOB) specific forms are located here and here.

For the ATO Sys Ops IDP form, it is located here.

Where is the item in eLMS that will store my IDP?
