Individualized Learning Plans (ILPs) are personalized plans developed collaboratively by students and school personnel to set goals that help students focus on their academic and career futures and keep them on track toward these goals. This guide from the National Collaboration on Workforce and Disability for Youth (NCWD/Youth) at the Institute for Educational Leadership outlines how to promote quality ILPs in secondary, postsecondary, workforce development and non-school settings. The guide provides evidence-based resources for designing, implementing, and evaluating career development programs and services. The guide also discusses how to introduce ILPs to new audiences and how to align sequences of career development activities with key development outcomes.
NCWD/Youth, Institute for Educational Leadership’s guide is a go-to resource for stakeholders across systems to use to promote ILPs in their institutions to encourage improved learner outcomes.
