ICS Real Stories: Faith | CIPD Level 3 Review


Our Level 3 Diploma in Human Resource Practice helped Faith to get her first job as an HR administrator. Find out more about her experience with us.


I am currently studying a Level 3 Diploma with ICS Learn and I am a HR administrator. I had experience in working within a HR department, but really felt I would benefit from gaining a qualification in Human Resources.

I looked at what organisations were offering out there in HR qualifications and came across ICS Learn.

I had someone contact me from ICS Learn and go through my options, which really helped me in choosing which course was best for me.

Everything was clearly explained too, and I felt this was definitely the one for me. It had great results and great reviews too.

I have quite a busy life with family and work, so to be able to study from the comfort of my home, as and when I want, really appealed to me.

There are the tutors are always there should I find myself ‘stuck’ and as is the student chat line which has always been very helpful, and I always feel they are motivating me too.

I did have reservations in home study but since I’ve been on this course I don’t feel I’m alone. There is an option to speak to other students.

Plus, the fact I can basically log on where ever I am and do some of my work. It’s totally choice which days I chose to do my homework and fit in around my family and work life.

It actually helped me get my first job working as an HR administrator.

A CIPD qualification is a highly respected qualification, and I am seeing more and more employers requesting candidates have this qualification should they be looking for a job in HR.

As I said I am studying towards getting my Level 3 Diploma, which hopefully I will complete within the next 6 weeks, then I will look into doing the Level 5 Diploma.

It’s such a great way to study as I am in control of when and how much I want to do.

I don’t have to worry about travelling to get to study or only been able to study on certain days either.
