Pathways

Continue your journey of personal and professional development through Pathways, Toastmasters’ new education program! As the foundation of your Toastmasters experience, Pathways is designed to help you build the skills you need to communicate and lead. You have 11 paths to choose from, developing skills in Speaking, Leadership, Management, Interpersonal Communication and Confidence.

The 10 Paths

Check out the Welcome to Pathways information on the Toastmasters International homepage for:

  • An overview of the new learning program
  • The “Welcome to Pathways” video
  • Details on each of the 11 Learning Paths
  • Access to the first project in Pathways – the “Ice Breaker”

 

 

 

Choosing a Path

At some point, perhaps along with your Mentor, you’ll want to select the Path you would like to follow.  The following process is suggested:

  1. Take the official Pathways Assessment (Choose your Path) at www.toastmasters.org/start-pathways (member login required). The results will give you three (3) suggested Paths.
  2. Review the description of the three (3) suggested Paths. You may also easily check out the descriptions of the other Paths by selecting ‘Other Paths’ below the three suggested ones.
  3. Select the Path that is the best fit for you. Each member receives one Path as part of their membership.

NOTE: You may take this assessment as many times as you like! You do not have to select your Path right away.


 

Level 1 Project Resources

Level 1 projects are where your journey begins. The projects are the same for all Paths and are listed below. All resources are available to logged in members on Base Camp.

  • Project 1: Ice Breaker (sample this project via the link to the TMI website!)
  • Project 2: Evaluation and Feedback
  • Project 3: Researching and Presenting

 

Evaluation Forms

Each speech project requires a written evaluation. Evaluation forms for all projects in Pathways can be downloaded from the Resource Library on the Toastmasters International website, as well as from Base Camp.


 

For further information, please don’t hesitate to talk to the club’s VP of Education or your Toastmasters Mentor.  We’d be more than delighted to help you along your way.

Enjoy your journey!
