Toastmasters Education Program

The Toastmasters Education Program has two aims, to help members become:

  • Better Communicators; and
  • Better Leaders

To address this, the education program is divided into two tracks - communication and leadership. Each member has the opportunity to set and achieve his or her individual goals within the tracks.

The Competent Communication Manual is designed to give a strong start in developing a core set of skills for public speaking. Each of the ten projects in this basic manual focuses on a certain aspect of speech making -- from organisation to delivery

The Communication Track Beginning with projects from the Competent Communications "Basic" manual, this track is dedicated to improving member's speaking and listening skills

The Competent Leadership Manual focuses on different leadership skills through ten projects, each providing the member background information and an assignment that requires serving in one or more specified meeting or club roles in which the aspects of that skill can be practiced.

The Leadership Track Beginning with projects from the Competent Leadership manual, this track focuses on developing a member's leadership skills through a variety of Club and District activities.

The Advanced Communication Manuals challenge members to further improve their skills in a specific area of public speaking. Some manuals focus on "real life" situations such as public relations and technical briefings, while others help develop more widely applicable skills such as humor and storytelling.

Leadership Opportunities Toastmasters members may take advantage of many opportunities to strengthen their leadership skills. Many members take on leadership roles within the organization while others prefer to conduct specialized workshops to help their fellow members or their community.
