The Toastmasters Pathways learning experience is a modernised communications and leadership educational program that all new members to the club will participate in. It was introduced in 2017 and aims to provide the most relevant and in-demand communication and leadership skills required in the modern day working world.
At the start of your journey with Toastmasters, you will select one of ten educational paths on offer, each specialising in a specific leadership and communication discipline.
What are the paths?
You’ll undertake an online assessment which will determine the most relevant pathway to you based on your expressed interests and development needs.
The paths available are listed below.
The online assessment will shortlist three options, and suggest one in particular based on your answers; however, you can ignore the recommendations and pick any path you prefer.
To find out more about each of the paths and the projects you’ll do within them, click the button below:
There is also a downloadable PDF book that you might want to print and read offline available. To access the PDF, click here.
How is the program structured?
The Pathways program is divided into five levels. The program begins with foundational topics common to all paths and progress to increasingly advanced projects relevant to the speciality you’ve chosen.
- Level 1: Mastering Fundamentals
- Level 2: Learning Your Style
- Level 3: Increasing Knowledge
- Level 4: Building Skills
- Level 5: Demonstrating Expertise
You’ll work through a total of 14 projects across the five levels, many of which are elective to achieve your final award. You can read more about the contents of the paths by reading the web resource created by District 4 (in the US). Click button below to access!
