Many years ago I took another online course so understood the overall concept and how it worked. Both were positive experiences.
During my course, I was placed on furlough, which made completing it slightly easier from a time perspective!
I was off work for three months. Upon my return, my job title was amended to Assistant, People & Culture to signify my studies which was great and aligned with the future path I wanted to take within DAC.
The course has made me more confident in my abilities and I feel I’m more supported within the CIPD HR community. I know who to turn to if I have any questions or where to look for the answers.
The course itself was extremely insightful, it didn’t feel like studying as I enjoyed every minute of it. There are eight modules to work through, no exams, just a written report at the end of each section. The tutors guide you all the way through and they upload recordings of content which is very useful. There is also a student community where you can communicate with other like-minded students.
I completed my course in August 2020 and received my Diploma in November 2020. I would absolutely recommend ICS Learn. All their content was easy to follow and engage with. The course was well put together with everything I needed in one place.
