Who can benefit from a CIPD Award?

Almost anyone can study and obtain a CIPD award or certificate if they are driven, keen to learn and have a passion for business. Whether you’re looking to move into a career in Human Resources and Learning & Development, or already employed in the sector but want to further your career and deepen your understanding, obtaining a CIPD qualification with ICS Learn is exceptionally beneficial. Designed to be as flexible as possible, our CIPD courses are particularly well suited for:

  1. Line managers with responsibility for people management and development
  2. Those looking to become a professional member of the CIPD as an Associate Member


At ICS Learn, we understand that many people who could benefit from such a CIPD qualification, such as line managers, do not have time to leave their employment to go back to full time education. That’s why we deliver CIPD courses in as flexible a manner as possible, giving you the freedom to study at your own pace and to your own timetable.

There are a number of different routes for achieving a CIPD qualification with ICS Learn. Whether you want to advance your career in the field or are keen to get started in HR and L&D, we will have a flexible home study course that helps you achieve your goals.

Difference between Awards, Certificates and Diplomas

CIPD Awards are bitesize qualifications accredited by CIPD which will give you knowledge of a specific field. They're ideal for people who want to refresh their existing professional knowledge of a specific HR or L&D subject area. 

CIPD Certificates are medium-scope qualifications which cover essential subject areas comprehensively. 

CIPD Diplomas are the most extensive accredited CIPD qualifications that cover more subject areas and earn you more credits than the Certificates.

Career Development: Where can an ICS Learn course take me?

Whether you’re starting out or more experienced in your chosen field of study, CIPD qualifications are a great way to develop your professional knowledge and advance your career in HR or learning development. CIPD qualifications hold weight with employers. By studying for either a CIPD award, certificate or diploma, you could obtain a role as a HR Assistant, a Learning and Development Administrator or even a HR Coordinator and Trainer.
