Individual Growth Plan (IGP)

The Individual Growth Plan (IGP) is a Rosedale-designed, student-centred program that provides a holistic view of student growth and fully utilizes school resources to meet individual student growth goals.

Vision of IGP

The Individual Growth Plan (IGP) is our signature student success service program in Rosedale Global High School with a vision that all students have the right to make choices in their education and must be empowered to take ownership of their own learning to acquire essential skills for their future. With the support of local school counsellors, students develop their individualized career goal, university goal, and short-term development goals with trackable action plans, and acquire goal setting and management skills, which lead to life-changing learning outcomes and lifelong success.

Goals of IGP

Ensure students are equipped with the knowledge and skills they need to make informed choices on post-secondary education and career goals.

Develop detailed growth targets, action plans, tracking and reflection for students in every school year, in four areas: Personal Learning Plan, Skill Development Plan, Post-Secondary Institution Plan and Extra-Curricular  Plan.

Engage parents and the broader community in the development, implementation, and evaluation of IGP, to integrate and streamline efforts between international partner schools and their students, supporting student growth.

Our IGP Framework

The framework of the Individual Growth Plan (IGP) has three components: Goal Setting, Detailed Growth Targets and Action Plans, and Year-Long Goal Management Processes. Students collaborate with their IGP counsellor on an annual basis to develop or reassess their goals (semester, university, career), and work to develop detailed growth targets and action plans. During the school year, they execute their plans and will track, review and reflect on their progress. The three components of the IGP are not necessarily sequential—it is an evolving plan for the students and adjusted to each individual student’s growth mandate and development. 

Rosedale IGP Resources and Practice Training Program

IGP Platform

The IGP Platform is an industry-leading career planning resource platform that provides comprehensive and real-time data on university programs around the world, career information and employment statistics in a global context. 

IGP OSSD Credit Course

Designing Your Future is an OSSD credit course that prepares students to make successful transitions to post-secondary institutions by investigating specific post-secondary options, exploring the possibilities and realities of career trajectories, and developing an action plan for future success.   

IGP Weekly Workshops

We have developed a series of teacher-led workshops that support students in acquiring the skills necessary in the IGP program, and providing additional opportunities for career exploration through career seminars, guest speakers, alumni connections and more.   


IGP Practice Training Program 

Our IGP Practice Training Program provides counsellors at our international partner schools with detailed methodologies, resources, processes and toolkits for each component of the IGP. The program also supports counsellors in developing strategic and cohesive counselling skills so they can successfully implement the IGP at international partner schools.

Student IGP Portfolio

The IGP Portfolio is a Collection of Evidence-Based Tracking and Reporting Documentswhich reflect multifaceted student growth during the program.

IGP Leads to Student Life-Long Success

One of the merits of IGP is that it helps students recognize their growth with data and evidence, and we see students motivated to put more effort into their learning and growth. When a student felt frustrated, our counsellor sat together with student and reviewed his records in the IGP portfolio, showing a growth trend throughout his school year. The counsellor told the student as long as he can progress—even by a little—over time you will reach your goals.

IGP is also a great communication tool between the school and parents. We’ve had parents provide very positive feedback on IGP, including a thank-you letter from a parent. IGP is a great program for schools, students and parents.
