individual development plan

The individual development plan (IDP) is a tool for NAVFAC employees to define their career goals and identify learning and development opportunities to support their career planning. 

 

 

Note: If you have not already completed your Individual Development Plan, click on the "Complete Your IDP" icon to begin.

Completing your individual development plan

Within your Career Compass IDP, you will summarize career goals, identify technical and non-technical development objectives, and specify which development activities you’d like to pursue to meet your goals and requirements. Here’s how to access and complete your Career Compass IDP: 
 
  1. Download the NAVFAC Career Compass IDP form using the link above. 

  2. Explore learning and development activities that align with your goals through the Career Compass Catalog, Event Calendar, and your Community Management Plan

  3. Complete and sign your IDP. 

  4. Email a copy of your IDP to your supervisor and schedule time to review it together. 

  • Once your supervisor approves your IDP, you will receive a copy with both signatures. (They will also forward a copy to Headquarters at NAVFACHQTotalForceDevelopment@us.navy.mil.) 

  • Data from all IDP submissions will be used to shape the SYSCOM-wide training initiatives and decisions for FY23. 

  1. Save the finalized version of your signed IDP. Since no personally identifiable information is retained by HQ, this will be the only way to access your form in the future. 

  1. Launch your learning and development and track your progress! 

  1. Throughout the year, also be on the lookout for additional career development opportunities such as Mentor pairing and Rotation assignments!
