“Level 3 HR certificate ”

Written on: 03/10/2016

The reason for choosing ICS Learn was the fact that I could fit the course around my work and personal commitments and it did so perfectly. I found the two workshops in London I attended for the HR course to be an extremely useful source of support, a place to share ideas, an opportunity to meet the tutors in person and the perfect opportunity for networking. I also found the mentor/support team to be very helpful… Read Full Review

“Thank you ICS!”

Written on: 03/10/2016 by 433Gauthier (1 review written)

I enjoyed the course. Invaluable for keeping up-to-date with business trends and equipping students with basic, theoretical knowledge. Sticks faithfully to the CIPD syllabus. What I feel would be beneficial though would be some HR situational case studies. Also, it takes a fair bit of organisation to synch your studies with the dates of the compulsory workshops initially. I know someone who managed to finish the course within 6 months although for most people I think that would really be… Read Full Review

“CIPD Learning & Development with ICS Learn”

Written on: 11/08/2016

ICS Learn were very helpful and professional throughout the course of my studies. All the material is available online and tutors get back to you quickly with any help you need. The course was broken down into units which made it easy to see how I was progressing in my studies. Being distance learning gives the flexibility to work at your own pace and convenience. This was perfect for me as I work full time and have a family with children. The workshop in London was fun, enjoyable and… Read Full Review

“Short on information”

Written on: 08/08/2016 by 83McCartney (1 review written)

The course itself was good, but there was very little help from either tutors or mentors. Correspondence from ICS after completing the course was not existent, I had to contact you to find out what happens next. Overall, I was not impressed with the admin side of the course… Read Full Review

“Great tutors”

Written on: 30/07/2016 by Jaimes301 (1 review written)

Thought overall the course was great value for money. Personally I realised distance learning is not for me but would be perfect for someone who can motivate themselves. The course itself was easy to navigate and the student support/tutors are very helpful in answering any questions. The workshops were useful and it's nice to have some interaction with other students and tutors… Read Full Review

“Great support and great tutors.”

Written on: 20/07/2016 by HRBP (1 review written)

The support has been great from start to finish. All the tutors has been so helpful and managed to guide me in the right direction if I ever got stuck. The course took me longer than I had in mind but they helped me out and gave me the reassurance and support to make me finish the course. The workshops was well organised and his guidance during the lecture was priceless. Daniels workshop was well structured and very rewarding. I cant name all the tutors but they all came back to be fast and… Read Full Review

“Good for the money ”

Written on: 07/07/2016 by Mitchell139 (1 review written)

When I began this qualification I was eager to find the content and to understand how everything works. Now that I finish I can say that in general everything was partial ok, there are several situations who needs solutions. For example the possibility of book workshops by internet is a excellent improvement, definitely I'm sure that I would have finished the qualification quickly. Some misunderstood during the studies happened and I think that some clarification could be beneficial about how… Read Full Review

“Perfect service ”

Written on: 07/07/2016

Leigh at the web chat was extremely helpful with my questions and queries and was more than helpful. So far all my dealings with ICS have been great even the brief chat with the tutor who has assisted me with my course has been good. I would highly recommend the team at ICS to anyone wanting to start a course, the process of enrolment was easy. But my only one issue would be that you are told prior to the course that you HAVE to enroll with ILM to sit the assessments as I was under the… Read Full Review

ICS offered The possibility to study from distance and this was necessary for myself considering i've a full time job. The units Were clear and well structured same as for The workshops although i feel that these could be possibly condensed in 1 day. The venue for these wasn't great,(baden Powell) mucche better The other one close to Oxford circus.

Written on: 14/04/2016 by Dickeyjf490 (1 review written)

The weekend mandatory courses are a total waste of time and all participants felt they were longer than needed and frankly really boring and not very helpful in the grand scheme of the course. The website is not easy in anyway to navigate and the course material dose not include any actual books only the online versions that you cannot download or at least I could not find how to The saving grace was the tutoes themselves (not the extra people ONLY the ones makring papers).

Written on: 09/04/2016 by Figueroavw239 (1 review written)

ICS has made my home learning journey thoroughly enjoyable and fulfilling through dedicated lecturers and mentors. On contacting ICS, I was provided with all the information I needed and all my questions were answered. This was followed up by an extremely informative email detailing everything we had spoken about. Within three days of joining ICS my course equipment was delivered and my mentor contacted me offering full support. This continued throughout my studies. ICS were always extremely… Read Full Review

“Feedback on ICS level 7 employment law course”

Written on: 18/03/2016 by PierceLacroix135 (1 review written)

I would highly recommend the employment law course I recently undertook with ICS, course materials were very thorough and well produced, targeted well to the assignments and subject matter, and helpfully presented and readable. ICS staff were efficient, very helpful, and went out of their way to facilitate my study and achievement of the course, they were swift to respond to enquiries and comments. Tutor support and feedback was excellent and enabled me to improve assignments and learning… Read Full Review

“misleading, though monthly payment reminder works very...”

Written on: 24/02/2016 by Parwana (1 review written)

I have been ICS student since Jun 2014, mentors contradict the tutors and have to wait days for one of them to reply to your question, if you ask again you will be told another thing or misled. If you raise the issue with ICS then they will just repeat the things again and again. They are more like a broken record. If I could get my money back that I paid over almost 2 years, I would definitely do that. You re forced to get CIPD membership when none of the CIPD search engine works! It is… Read Full Review

“Advanced Employment Law Course”

Written on: 16/02/2016 by Royleman (1 review written)

What a fantastic and well structured course, the answers to many questions are only 300 words long which mean you have to be succinct in your answers and read a lot to get the right content. My tutor provided excellent support, always answered my queries and marked all my assignments fairly and made constructive comments to point me in the right direction. If you would struggle to get to a college in the evening do a ICS Learn Correspondence Course you wont regret it!… Read Full Review

“GCSE Maths (Higher)”

Written on: 09/01/2016 by Churnet (1 review written)

I am 55 years old (left school at 16) but without doing exams. Since then have done numerous exams including level 2 Maths but still yearned to do the actual GCSE. I tried so many different types of institutions (including 1-1 with a maths tutor) but failed to progress past the first term. I have obtained some qualifications as a long distance learner and thought I would try ICS. I enrolled September 2015 to a much different way of learning! I still got all the course materials but twice a week… Read Full Review
