ICS Real Stories: Nin | Online CIPD Level 3 Review
Nin Sandhu studied our CIPD Foundation Level 3 course to take the first step into her dream role in HR, moving from a finance role with no HR experience.
I am currently studying CIPD Foundation Level 3 in Human Resource Practice and very near to finishing.
I started my course at the beginning of January 2018 and I have found the study support to be amazing throughout!
When I decided to undertake the CIPD Foundation course I was actually working in finance in accounts payable.
I really wanted to break into HR/Learning and Development roles, but the jobs I was applying for required a CIPD qualification, so I then took the leap and started with ICS Learn.
Since studying the course, I have managed to get a job in Human Resources on temporary basis and now as a Training Co-Ordinator for another organisation!
Before taking on the course I was very reluctant as I’m not the most academically smartest and I thought I would struggle.
I wasn’t too sure about online learning as it is not something I have ever done before, but ICS Learn have made my studying very comfortable and consistent with support.
I am finding that I am doing so much better with online learning rather than in a classroom.
I can switch off from the world whenever it suits me, when I am relaxed and able to concentrate with the online learning as it is very flexible and suits my busy lifestyle that consists with a full-time job and family time.
The tutor support is at its highest quality with in depth feedback and prompt responses via the ICS Learn portal. I am able to message my tutor whenever I feel a bit stuck with a section in my work.
There have been occasions where I haven’t managed to pass my assignment the first time round but with the in-depth feedback I have receive from my tutor’s, I know exactly where I need to improve and manage to get a pass on the second submission!
I am hoping to further my career in Learning and Development in more senior roles, but considering I am partly qualified in CIPD I feel like I haven’t done too badly!
From not being able to get an interview for such roles I started getting offers as soon as I mentioned CIPD on my CV.
I have recommended this course to a friend and would recommend ICS to anyone else who wants to gain a professional, industry recognised qualification. I am planning to do more training in the future with ICS Learn.
