CIPD Level 5 Associate Diploma in People Management

Kirstin made the move from Canada to England and as a HR Professional, she wanted to make sure she was up to date with the UK HR Employment Law and Common Practices. She is currently working towards her Level 5 Associate Diploma in People Management

Before moving to England, I was working as an HR generalist in Canada. Upon my arrival, I wanted to ensure that I was prepared for a human resources role in a new country, and better acquaint myself with UK employment law and common practices. That’s when I decided to pursue the CIPD level 5 diploma in People Management and found ICS learn.

I chose ICS learn for the freedom and flexibility that they offered, and they have been the ideal course provider for me.

As a people practitioner my aim has always been to provide employees with a healthy and rewarding work environment. I enjoy working with organisations to improve the employee experience and foster a positive company culture. I feel this diploma will only help me to continue to do this and improve the impact I have on the organisations I work for.

From the moment I enquired their staff have been responsive and helpful. The tutor support is always quick and efficient, and the learning materials provide a clear understanding of the topics. Additionally, being able to complete this diploma at my own pace and on my own time is exactly what I needed.

I am currently working as a People and Culture Administrator in Cornwall, and this course has been integral to my success and progression in my role.

Not only do I feel confident with my newly gained knowledge, but my previous skills have been refined and I feel well equipped to work in the UK. I am positive that this course is only going to help me continue to grow and succeed.

As I near the finish line, I am excited to progress in my career and see the continued benefits of earning this diploma. I am very happy I chose ICS learn for this journey.
