i-develop: Learning for CLD


Introducing i-develop: learning for CLD

i-develop is the national web-based professional learning framework supporting innovative learning and development for CLD practitioners, based on the values, principles, skills and competences shared by CLD practitioners and employers.

The Framework integrates the theory and practice that shape professional learning for the CLD sector, including peer support, communities of practice, learning journeys and reflection-in-action.

The Strands

i-develop has nine strands:

  • Vision and Values
  • Using the Competences
  • Leadership and Motivation
  • Communities of Practice
  • Learning Journeys
  • Quality and Continuous Improvement
  • Maximising opportunities through professional learning: employer perspective
  • Practitioners in new and changed positions
  • Required and regulatory training

The strands are grouped under three headings:

  • Vision & Values
  • Supporting Others
  • Developing the Self

i-develop: the technical bit

We know that some people have experienced difficulties loading the i-develop site. For information (perhaps for passing on to an IT person!) the following browsers support i-develop:

  • Internet Explorer version 7 and above
  • Mozilla Firefox
  • Google Chrome

If you are using another browser, particularly a version of Internet Explorer that is older than version 7, it is likely you will not be able to use all the functions of i-develop.
