Aspiring Leader Development Program Informational Virtual Presentations Announced

About ALDP

The Aspiring Leader Development Program (ALDP) Beta 2 pilot is a foundational development program for aspiring entry-level leaders (GS 5-7 and WG equivalents) that provides participants with the knowledge, skills, and tools to support the pursuit and ownership of their own professional development. The ALDP Beta 2 pilot consists of two phases:

Phase I is an open enrollment format consisting of self-paced, on-line courses and videos, assessment(s), and a feedback survey. Phase I focuses on building a common ground for participants through the online learning topics. For the year 2020, the online courses and videos are from LinkedIn Learning and TedtalksTM.  After enrollment in Phase I, participants have 60 days to complete Phase I content (4 hour 35 minutes of video courses and presentations). Upon completion of all Phase I requirements, participants will receive a confirmation email that they are eligible for ALDP Phase II.

Phase II is an eight month (32 members per cohort) structured program which includes 15 online/virtual workshops, learning activities, discussion boards, small group discussions, and leader discussion panels.
