CIPD Student Stories: Marion | CIPD Level 5 Diploma Review

Marion Trouche chose to study her CIPD Level 5 Associate Diploma in People Management with us online to earn the qualifications she needed to advance her career in the HR field.

I am currently studying for the CIPD Level 5 Diploma in Human Resources Management.

I studied Human Resources and Employment Law in France, however when I moved to the UK, I wanted to gain more knowledge, and I felt that taking on a new qualification was the best way for me to do that.

I started looking into online learning because I work full-time and attending in-person classes wasn’t an option for me.

I was unsure about whether online courses would be suited to me though and worried I wouldn’t be able to complete an online course on my own.

"I went on to compare different course providers, and with that alongside my colleagues’ recommendations, it became evident that ICS Learn was the best choice for me."


Since I have started the CIPD Level 5 course with ICS Learn, I have really enjoyed it and I have already finished my first two assessments and I am now working on the third one.

The course is well structured, and the content is more engaging than I could’ve imagined.
The online platform is easy to use, and the recorded webinars are great to help me understand what is required in the assessments.

"I’ve been pleasantly surprised by how easy an adjustment online learning has been, even for a first-timer like myself. "


This qualification has allowed me to continue working full-time without having to worry about finishing my course by a specific date.

You can decide when and where you want to study, and the tutors are incredibly supportive and helpful. The comments given on your assessments are also very constructive and have helped me understand where I most need to focus.

"I highly recommend the CIPD Level 5 course, mainly because the support that ICS Learn provides is outstanding."


I’m proud to say that I am currently working as a Human Resources Assistant, and a big part of that is because my qualification is so valued by my employer.

Thank you for your support, ICS Learn!
