Lucy had plenty of HR experience, but when she came to the UK she decided to enrol on a CIPD Level 5 Diploma to get ahead in a new working landscape. Read more about her story below.
I started my career in HR about 5 years ago in Australia and completed an Australian HR qualification. Since then, I have moved to the UK and quickly realised that a CIPD qualification is essential to have in order to land and progress a career in HR.
I’ve been working full time as an HR Administrator at a Logistics company for over 2 years and enroled on the ICS Learn CIPD Level 5 Diploma about 8 months ago.
I chose this qualification to increase my HR skills, wanting to especially develop my knowledge of UK laws and regulations, as this was something I wasn’t very familiar with.
I’ve studied online before and I did find it quite difficult juggling a full time job and having the self-discipline to set time aside to study, but after doing a lot of research on various distance learning providers, ICS Learn made me feel at ease due to the recommended study hours a week and the generous amount of time that they allowed you to complete the entire course! Compared to other providers.
