Online Networking courses (by Kintish)
If you are unable to fit face-to-face workshops into your schedule, why not try the free, interactive online training materials to which CAPOD subscribes? This page explains how to access the online courses by Kintish on How to become a more confident and effective networker. This lets you study whenever and wherever suits you best. (We also have programmes on research skills and teaching provided by Epigeum.)
How to apply for access
Visit the Kintish website to get an overview of the courses before completing your application. (You do NOT order from the Kintish site.) If you decide the courses are suitable, you request access to the courses with our online form. Applications can be submitted at any time and are reviewed by CAPOD staff as they are received. There are a fixed number of subscriptions to the Kintish courses; once they are all allocated no further applications will be accepted.
We will inform you within 4 weeks if your application is approved. (Kintish process batches of applications once a month.) If approved, you will be contacted directly by Kintish and provided with access codes to enable you to log in to the Kintish online learning website to complete the course(s) you have chosen.
What users say…
This is the first time we have offered the online courses from Kintish, but participants on their face-to-face networking workshops have said:
"Outstanding presenter - very useful, especially if you tend to be the one in the corner at academic/business events!"
"Is worthy - you get new vision and insight."
"There were many relevant and important tips for networking I can take away with me."
"Very practical techniques on 'how to work a room', eg the different types of groups, which ones to approach, etc."
