How many times have you heard yourself or others say: ‘It’s not what you know but who you know’? Well, how will anyone know what you know if they don’t have the opportunity of meeting with you? Successful professionals understand that networking is vital in order to build relationships with the right people and that doesn’t always mean at a pre-determined place or a pre-determined time. All too frequently these meetings are set up because the time of the initial contact, for instance on a plane or in the sauna, is not ideal to finalise career moves or business links. This course is designed to help you recognise opportunities and feel comfortable starting a conversation with a stranger. After all, all your friends were strangers once.

This Networking For Success course is available throughout the UK.

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At Reed Courses, courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on Reed Courses, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
