Enhance your HR career with a globally recognised CIPD qualification.


Mark enjoyed studying his CIPD Level 3 HR qualification with us so much, that he moved on to study his CIPD Level 5 and Level 7 qualifications online with us too! Find out more about his story below. 


I currently work as HR Manager for TOMY UK, leading on delivering the people strategy across three main offices, two in the UK and one in France.

I initially studied the CIPD Level 3 HR qualification with ICS Learn to help propel me into an HR role about four years ago.


Gaining this qualification really helped develop my knowledge and allowed me to grow in my role and take on more complex HR activities.


Since then I have moved through to complete the Level 5 HR qualification and have now started study the CIPD Level 7 Diploma.

These qualifications have enabled me to progress from an HR Administrator to HR Advisor and now recently moving into a management role.

Without these qualifications, I would not have been able to take on the opportunities that have presented themselves to me.


I chose to study the CIPD Level 3, 5 and 7 with ICS Learn due to the ease of their online service allowing me to study in my own time when it suited me without the pressure of tight deadlines every week.


ICS Learn offered good value for money and the ability to spread my repayments which was a key reason I chose them.

With online learning I was unsure how good the classrooms and tutor support would be, but this has been very good and any queries I have had have been answered both quickly and thoroughly.

Studying online with ICS Learn has been an easy and hassle-free way to gain my qualifications.


Working through the CIPD qualifications has massively helped in my day-to-day role, giving me the confidence to deliver my knowledge and support my employer through difficult situations.


In the future, I would like to continue developing my knowledge and aspire to run my own consultancy one day.
