Interpretive Development Program (IDP) Training Grant

**********Deadline to Spend Funds is July 15th **************************************

The Stephen T. Mather Training Center commits itself to the professional growth and continuous learning of all employees in its assigned career field and special programs and will provide them with comprehensive, competency-based, and mission focused training and development programs.

As the Interpretive Development Program (IDP) strives to offer learning opportunities that model 21st Century skills, there is a obvious need to expand and leverage resources.

***Please discuss your training opportunity with
your Supervisor before submitting this form***

The IDP Training grants allow interpreters and educators the opportunity to seek out their own professional development that has been defined by their Individual Development Plan. The training opportunity that is pursued should be in the areas defined by the 2015 Interpretation and Education Needs Assessment:

Audience Experience
Finding and Assessing Knowledge
Appropriate Techniques
Partnering
Collaboration and Community Outreach
Planning and Evaluation
Professional Development of Self and Others

If selected, NPS employees will be given funds that will help reduce the cost in training that is either face-to-face or at a distance.

Please complete the form below, once the form has been received a decision will be made within two weeks.
You will be notified via e-mail with next steps and directions. If you have any questions contact Kimble Talley via email at kimble_talley@nps.gov.
