Kickstart your HR career with a globally recognised CIPD qualification.

In search of a career change, Iain decided to take on a CIPD Level 3 qualification to get ahead in a new working landscape. Read more about his story below. 


At the start of 2020, I decided that I wanted a career change. I wanted to embark on a journey to give me more skills and develop myself into a career that had been a goal for a long time.

I’m currently a Service Advisor for Arnold Clark, I had thought about Human Resources for a long time and had always wanted to be in that industry. 

I decided that I would look to complete the CIPD Level 3 qualification, and after researching different course providers and speaking to numerous people within the industry, I came across ICS Learn.


Within a day of being in touch with them, I was called by Michelle. She answered all my questions, worries and discussed the process of the course with me in great detail. 


My initial thoughts around an online course were whether I'd be able to find the time to complete the course and what support I'd receive. 

Firstly, ICS Learn lets you complete the course at your own pace. You can arrange your study plan around you, I’m doing my course around my full-time job.

Secondly, you have your own personal tutor who supports you throughout your course. Stephen - my tutor - has given me guidance and support throughout my course and whenever I need him. 

I chose ICS Learn as the flexibility of learning at my own pace gives me the freedom to gain my CIPD Level 3 Diploma alongside my full-time job.


The flexible payment plan means that I can study at an affordable cost. I chose to study CIPD Level 3 qualification to gain an insight into HR & to kickstart my career within this industry.


Working within the Human Resources area is my career goal and working with ICS Learn gives me the opportunity to start off my career with CIPD. 

Working on my course, the online portal is very easy to work around going onto the different modules and easy presentation to follow.

The skills learned from the course has given me the confidence and background knowledge to go for a career within HR. It has given me so much information that I can use in an HR role and different processes that I can follow. 

I would definitely recommend ICS learn to anyone looking to pursue a diploma, it’s a very easy process to follow and from the initial stage to getting onto the course is within a matter of days so no need to wait on a course start date.
