Manager of Learning and Program Resources, Pathways to Education Canada

Toronto, Ontario
Deadline December 3, 2009

Pathways to Education Canada is an organization created in 2006 to bring the innovative and highly successful Pathways to Education Program™ to urban communities with intractable drop out problems across the country. The Program in Regent Park (our flagship program) has achieved groundbreaking results by significantly reducing the high school drop out rate for hundreds of youth in its community.

Pathways Canada is now poising itself to transition from a small staff team piloting the “replication” of the Program in Ontario communities, similar to Regent Park, to working with communities across Canada.

We are currently seeking a Manager of Learning and Program Resources to oversee the development, coordination, implementation and revision of learning opportunities and program resources for communities preparing for, implementing and delivering the Pathways Program.

The Pathways to Education Program and Pathways to Education Canada are both grounded in principles of inclusiveness, community ownership, knowledge exchange, continuous improvement and accountability. The Manager of Learning and Program Resources must work from the same set of principles and act primarily as an enabler and facilitator rather than trainer and curriculum developer.
