How should I use the Learning Pathways site?

Get started on the home page by choosing your topic of interest either from the main menu on top of the page or by scrolling down to the categories and sub-categories below.

Once you navigate to the category of your choice, explore the different sections to find the relevant Learning Pathway for you.

Each Pathway includes learning resources of various types that typically complement one another.

If you’re looking to learn as much as possible on a topic, explore each item in the relevant Pathway and start planning your learning journey.

However, if you’re looking for a specific skill or to fill a gap in your skill set, you have the option of choosing only the most relevant items in the corresponding Pathway.
