Introducing Learning Pathways

Learning Pathways are a new way of guiding you through connected Research in Practice key topics, supporting self-directed learning and enhancing professional development.

Development of the Learning Pathway experience is in its early stages and will continue to evolve over the coming months. We aim to make them Partner led and iterative so we are actively seeking your feedback in this testing phase by asking you some questions on each part of the pathway. You can also provide direct feedback to your Account Manager or by emailing ask@researchinpractice.org.uk.

Learning Pathways are a new way of guiding you through connected Research in Practice key topics, supporting self-directed learning and enhancing professional development. By following a pathway you can deepen your understanding of the topic, learn how to use a number of approaches and build skills which can support you in your work with children, young people, adults and families. Each resource includes reflective questions and practice implications to build knowledge and inform your decisions.

Each pathway contains resources to watch, read or listen to and opportunities to record your reflections to your continuing professional development (CPD) record. Pathways are flexible and you can return to each resource in your own time.

Feedback and future development

Thank you for sharing your views and working together with us in developing this new approach.
