Learning PathwaysLearning Pathways – a three-tier distance learning opportunity for Salvationists passionate about engaging in their community – is being launched soon by The Salvation Army’s International Headquarters. With the first students expected to sign up from March 2021, the first Learning Pathways material will be unveiled in a live launch event at 2pm GMT on Tuesday 17 November 2020.

With the Learning Pathways course eventually covering certificate-, diploma- and degree-level content, the online learning facility will offer an opportunity for anyone connected with The Salvation Army to deepen their understanding in the areas of community engagement, community development and community project management. The certificate-level material gives the foundation for engaging with a community using an Integrated Mission and Faith-Based Facilitation approach, bringing together theology and best practice, giving practical skills for community engagement and for supporting course participants’ personal development. 

The 45-minute launch event will offer potential participants a chance to discover more, and to put questions and comments to the Learning Pathways team using the special hashtag #TSALearningPathways. The live stream will include contributions from General Brian Peddle, the international leader of The Salvation Army, as well as from participants from various countries involved in the Learning Pathways pilot course and others with a passion for community engagement.
