NOTE: This tutorial is meant to explain the Pathways program before you begin it. It gives you an overview of what the program is about, explains new terms that are used and gives you graphic representations of the Paths, Levels and Projects. It does not explain how to log on or what happens once you are logged on. Hopefully, it will give you a fuller and clearer picture of what is meant by Pathways. Comments are welcomed. Just email me.

Pathways is designed to promote your personal and professional development.

PATHWAYS: An Overview
PATHWAYS is Toastmasters’ new education program! It will now serve as the foundation of your Toastmasters experience, and is designed to help you build the competencies you need to communicate and lead.
When starting Pathways, you will be introduced to new terms, such as: Assessment, Navigator, Base Camp, Core Competencies, Paths, Projects, Levels, and others. I've added some brief descriptions of these new terms below:
ASSESSMENT: Before you start, you take the Pathways Assessment online (log in required).There are ten different learning paths. To find the one that is right for you, you begin by taking the assessment. It helps you identify the path that best meets your needs, interests and goals. After responding to a series of questions, you will be presented with the path that best fits you and your current experience. You may be excited, energized or even surprised by the path recommended to you. The Pathways Assessment helps to point you in the best possible direction. You'll need to log in to participate in the Assessment.
After you receive your assessment results, you can embark on the Path recommended to you or choose one of the other nine paths available. No matter which Path you choose, you will complete at least 14 educational projects and present a minimum of 15 prepared speeches. You will also serve in various meeting roles. Each Path is divided into five levels that build in complexity. The levels help you build on and apply what you have learned.
