Kickstart your HR career with a globally recognised CIPD qualification.


Curtis Meale chose to make the most of his free time during lockdown to study his CIPD Level 3 Diploma with us online to earn the qualifications he needed to advance his career in the HR field.

I’m 19 years old and currently studying a CIPD Level 3 Foundation Diploma with ICS Learn.

Due to COVID-19 delaying the start date of my HR apprenticeship, I’ve recently been unemployed, and this meant that at the start of the lockdown I had lots of time and nothing to do. 

After speaking with members of my family and speaking to my friends, I decided to enrol for an HR course online. I believe that studying the course will enhance my learning and understanding of HR and provide more opportunities for me to progress well in the industry.

I looked online for the best provider of these courses and I had already been recommended to ICS Learn through a friend, so I looked at the course details and felt like it was the perfect course for me.

When signing up for the online course the member of the support staff that I spoke to was very informative and made registration a swift and simple process.

After enroling, I read through all the guidelines and student information almost immediately. I found that the online student community is very easy to navigate and is very specific on where to find resources and communicate with peers and tutors.

Studying during lockdown has actually improved my motivation and time efficiency. I made a study schedule to follow so that I can keep on track with the study units and assignments.

The course provides lots of information and good resources, and even though I am only halfway through my course, I feel like my understanding of HR has already drastically improved.

The support I have been given by my tutors is great! They are always happy to help and reply to my questions quickly.

The tutors are available for calls and chats at any time and provide lots of detail and support. I found this especially useful as it allows me to progress efficiently.

In the future, I hope to have a great career progression and eventually become a leading professional in HR. I believe that completing this course will kickstart this process as it will allow me to study at higher levels and excel in the workplace.

I would recommend ICS Learn to anyone looking to complete an online course during lockdown.

I believe that it will improve their understanding of their chosen field and allow them to communicate with other likeminded people!

ICS Learn provides ease of access and efficient response times to questions and assignment submission, including detailed feedback which can enhance your learning and personal development.
