CIPD Student Stories: Lydia Beavington | CIPD Level 3 Review
Lydia had some exposure to HR in her current job role, however, her interest grew and she decided she'd like to learn more and take on a CIPD qualification. Discover more about her story below.
My background is in Finance and Office Management and I’ve worked alongside HR at various points of my career which has given me an interest in the broader aspects of HR and the role it plays in the wider working environment. This is what lead me to study an online CIPD Level 3 qualification.
I studied for an ICS Learn Diploma in Business Management many years ago, so they were the first place I looked once I had decided to do another distance learning course.
I did consider other providers as well but ICS Learn still has great reviews and the Course Advisor I spoke to was so helpful right from the start so I knew I would be in good hands.
Ciaran was able to answer all of my questions about the course, what to expect from assessments, and gave me the confidence to enrol.
ICS Learn was also able to provide me with a fully flexible payment plan which was tailored to me with a low deposit and 0.00% interest, which makes the courses they provide much more affordable.
The online learning environment is easy to navigate and what sets ICS Learn apart from other providers is that you can study completely at your own pace without needing to worry about the added stress of additional deadlines if you’re also working full time like I am.
I have felt completely supported by my unit tutors who are always contactable by email and usually get back to me within a few hours or the next day. There are also regularly scheduled live webinars for each of the units which have been invaluable when preparing for assessments.
I’m about halfway through my course now and have already learned so much, it’s been great for my professional development and when I look back at the unexpected events of 2020, I’m proud that I can say I got something worthwhile out of it.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend ICS Learn to anyone considering distance learning.
