ICS Real Stories: Loraine | Online CIPD Level 3 Review

Loraine Branch

CIPD Level 3 Foundation Certificate in People Practice

Studying our online CIPD Level 3 course has given Loraine Branch the confidence to seek new opportunities after she was unfortunately made redundant. 


Having been made redundant 3 years ago, I was finding it hard to secure a new position in my adopted county of the Netherlands.

Even though I have 10 years of Learning & Development experience, it was still very difficult for me to get a new job.

During the first year of my redundancy, I did an online course to obtain a Personal Performance Coaching Diploma. After obtaining my certification, still had no luck with securing a new job.

So, I was told by a friend to look at a CIPD HR Qualification which I hope will expand my skills and advance my career move into HR. As I live in Amsterdam, an online cause was the most favourable option.

ICS Learn came up in my online search and the first thing I did was review the feedback on the company which was extremely good.

Several aspects of what ICS Learn offered drew me to them, for instance, the interest-free payment process and their 96% pass rate.

When I started I naturally compared the service at ICS Learn to the company who had delivered the coaching course I had recently finished and was extremely pleased to say they provided a first-rate service.

I went through a difficult period with my health and was unable to complete any of the studies for a large period of time and the team were so supportive and have encouraged me to move forward with my study.

Knowing they are there for both my personal and professional needs has given me the confidence to complete the study and secure a position within HR in the near future.

I would highly recommend ICS Learn to anyone who wants to achieve an HR or L&D qualification.
