IPD Online Upgrade Launched by ICE
The long awaited IPD Online upgrade has been launched recently by the ICE. It is used to support ICE members on an ICE Training Scheme or following a mentor-supported training programme. The ICE has information on the upgrade available usingthis link if you are registered with them.
Having used it already when supporting graduates that he is mentoring, our Dr Andy Goodwin has prepared a brief summary of the key changes that he has come across from a user's perspective. You can read his thoughts here. Overall the new system seems much improved and more efficient, but the proof will come over time as everyone uses it!
If you are in need of mentoring or need a mentor for your staff, then please contact Andy Goodwin and he will happily talk you through what we could do for you without any obligation.
