ALDP Update – ALDP Beta 2 Pilot Continues

About the Program

The Aspiring Leader Development Program (ALDP) Beta 2 pilot serves as a foundational development program for aspiring entry-level leaders (GS 5-7 and WG equivalents) by providing participants with knowledge, skills and tools to support the pursuit and ownership of their own professional development.

The ALDP Beta 2 Pilot consist of two phases:

Phase I is open enrollment and consists of self-paced on-line courses and videos, assessments, and feedback surveys. Phase I focuses on building a common ground for participants utilizing online resources.

For the year 2020, the online courses and videos are from LinkedIn Learning and TedTalks™. Once individuals are enrolled in Phase I, they will have 60 days to complete Phase I content (approximately 4 hours and 35 minutes of video courses and presentations). Upon completion of all Phase I requirements, individuals will receive a confirmation email of their eligibility for ALDP Phase II.

Phase II is an eight month cohort (32 members) and a structured program, including:

  • 15 online workshops(meeting every two weeks)
  • Learning activities
  • Discussion boards
  • Small group discussions
  • Leader panels

Check out the ALDP Beta 2 Pilot Phase II Cohort Schedule for a sample of Phase II.
