Community Pathways

MLFTC Community Pathways empowers community members and parents to complement the work of teachers and schools.

Community Pathways lead to paid or volunteer work in schools and other learning environments; they can also provide the first steps for people interested in becoming professional educators. Parents and guardians also benefit by mastering instructional skills to support their children’s learning. Community Pathways include small, stand-alone modules, courses and experiences. These resources allow learners to explore a variety of educational skills, earn micro-credentials and right-size their learning according to their needs.
