What does a KCCTO IPDP look like?
Once you have reviewed the KCCTO Individualized Professional Development Plan (IPDP) Guide, you can customize the different parts of the IPDP to fit your needs. KCCTO has provided several different options that are relevant to Kansas providers.
Basic: this IPDP provides basic guidance for completing a self-assessment, setting goals, and tracking professional education. This IPDP uses the National Association for the Education of Young Children’s 5 Guidelines for Effective Teaching as a framework.
CDA Candidates: this IPDP’s self-assessment, goal-setting, and professional education tracking documents help you plan for and meet Child Development Associate (CDA) Credential professional education requirements
New Providers: this IPDP’s self-assessment, goal-setting, and professional education tracking documents help you plan for and meet initial KDHE licensing requirements
Annual Training: this IPDP’s self-assessment, goal-setting, and professional education tracking documents help you identify areas you would like to improve upon as you plan for and meet annual training requirements. This IPDP uses the Core Competencies for Early Childhood and Youth Development Professionals (Kansas and Missouri) as a framework.

3. Track Your Training
If you do not already have a method of tracking your training, you may find one of the templates provided below helpful in getting you started.
*Remember that if you are completing training for your CDA Renewal, you are not required to complete a specific number of hours in each Subject Area. However, tracking which Subject Areas your Renewal training applies to can help you identify areas in which you might be lacking training. Use this form along with your identified goal(s) to determine specific training topics you would like to pursue.
