“Review of CIPD Intermediate in Employment Law”

Written on: 13/11/2013

I was nervous about studying again, having left school over 20 years ago, but soon got into the swing of things. The element I liked best about studying with ICS was access to a CIPD professional, in particular a published author as well. The actually learning process was extremely interesting and I really got a feel for what goes on in a tribunal after I spent the morning at an actual tribunal, which was fascinating - I recommend to all students to do this… Read Full Review

“Good course but better preperation would of helped”

Written on: 11/11/2013

Thank you ICS.. Once i was underway I can say it was a good course, however, initally not enough information was given. Also the workshops should have been arranged before the assignments were due in. Attending workshops after the assignments were submitted was of little use. However, ICS tutors were helpful and responded to queries quickly… Read Full Review

“CIPD Award ”

Written on: 09/11/2013 by Mrs.kassim (1 review written)

I found that ICS was very flexible with me and I needed the flexibility because at times it was hard to study with my children. The materials was fantastic and I was able to gather additional research online and from the recommended resources. The tutor advised me on ways to make my assessment better and I passed. The price was excellent too! I am so happy I chose ICS… Read Full Review

“ICS Learn. But can't contact anyone. ”

Written on: 08/11/2013 by Jen7 (1 review written)

The course itself is good apart from mistakes in math equations etc that mean you waste loads of time trying to figure out questions that are written wrong in the first place. Only by paying for a private tutor was this sorted out. Also trying to get in contact is very problematic, a lot of emails aren't answered and I've been cut off on the phone and during chat. The course is set out well and very nicely presented but there is very little help. When I tried to sort out extended tuition I was… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/11/2013

I enjoyed the studies and it was good to be able to do it in my own time. I think it would have been good to have one or more sessions with the whole group and tutor. The tutor was very helpful when I talked to her. I think it would have been good to have an example in the course material that explained how to reference the law and stress that it is very important to reference the law directly. All in all good course and enjoyable assignment… Read Full Review

“ICS CIPD Qual”

Written on: 08/11/2013

I chose ICS because they were flexible and offered home study. I got my study material reasonable quickly, and it was all presented very clearly. My first workshop was great, I learnt a lot and grew in confidence. My second workshop was very poor, I didn't rate the tutor at all and we all felt we didn't learn much. Assignments were marked quite quickly and feedback was very clear. Mentor support was reasonable, responses were generally quick and clear. I wouldn't use ICS again, mainly… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/11/2013

Great way to get qualifications relaxed way of learning without the stress of college or a class room and learning in your own time no pressures I have a family of three children which range between 3 years and 13 so to go back to a college wasn't an option and with three differen school runs to do there is no time in a day so to study from home in my own time is fantastic .

“Value for money”

Written on: 06/11/2013 by LnDSpendy (1 review written)

I found ICS to be a great way to afford to fund my own development and be able to gain a recognised qualification. The knowledge and skills I have gained have raised my profile and allowed me to deliver services at a higher level. I had some frustration in using the online community towards the end of study, I also found that I had the chase queries 2 or 3 times before getting a response. These things were dealt with by a department head who quickly resolved the issues and was happy to update… Read Full Review

“Great course especially to undertake whilst working ”

Written on: 06/11/2013

ICS providing CIPD accredited course is really useful and convenient for those of us in full-time employment. I was able to study and progress at my own pace and had the time to undertake background reading and also incorporate my own working environment (HR Dept) into my studies. The ICS course team were easily accessible to provide support and gave timely advice and responses to my queries. I would recommended ICS as an option for further studies which are flexible, good quality and designed… Read Full Review

“Intermediate Employment Law - course review”

Written on: 06/11/2013 by BusyBeeGee (1 review written)

I thought it was a good course, well constructed and very useful. I admit to being very nervous about studying for the course whilst working full time and caring for a 1yr old - and, crucially, I haven't had to write technically since leaving college 15 years ago! However, the tutor was helpful and I soon found that I got into the stride of the course. It helped that the subject matter was actually very interesting! The course contained a lot of employment law information that was pertinent… Read Full Review

Course was o.k. at the beginning. The best part was the residential courses where you actually get an opportunity to speak to the tutor face to face and also liaise with other students. What was disappointing was when the student gateway was changed without notification so submitting assignments was difficult :-(… Read Full Review

“Good course but the service could have been better”

Written on: 06/11/2013

I didn't choose ICS personally, they were chosen by my company when I was asked if I would like to do the course/training. When the course information arrived, it wasn't very clear, as it felt like it was a generic pack so I wasn't sure what parts I was supposed to be doing. When I eventually got this clarified by my Mentor I was able to make a start. I submitted by assignment with enough time to make any changes if needed, but my assignment was not marked and I had to keep chasing it up… Read Full Review

“CIPD level 3 HRM ”

Written on: 05/11/2013 by Mkennaugh (1 review written)

I completed the level 3 HRM course within a year and have passed the course. I would definitely recommend using ICS as the tutors are great, feedback is useful and relevant and the coursework is set out well. The price of the course isn't bad and I am now using the skills I've gained in my current job. I liked the fact that I could study at my own pace as I work full time. I also enjoyed the weekend workshops and meeting people on the same course. I built close friendships and still ask for… Read Full Review
