Welcome to the Expanding your Network course. This course will help you to build lasting and productive relationships that may help you to move ahead in your career.

A person with a thinking bubble
Is this course for me?
You may not realise it, but you have a network—your family, friends, and maybe even co-workers. A network is a group of people who interact and remain in contact for mutual assistance or support. People in your network often have similar interests or concerns, but not always. Networking is about making connections with different people and building long-lasting, mutually beneficial relationships.

This course will help you to understand the benefits of networking, and in particular how professional networks can help you to identify business opportunities and to better understand career paths that you may wish to pursue.
