Xue Bai, Global HR Process Transformation Lead, Vodafone‘‘CIPD was the obvious choice. They are globally recognised qualifications with an influential network attached. ICS Learn gave me the flexibility to study as-and-when. My tutors were very experienced, and I'm already applying what I learnt.’’

Sarah Watts‘‘Working full-time and having two young children, it was important that I could work at my own pace. My HR Director encouraged me to take this route rather than do an MA, as she felt CIPD was more about applying the theory in practice.’’
- Sarah Watts

Maria Cristina Araviso‘‘Having a CIPD qualification I feel more confident and more credible in my work. I would highly recommend it to anyone. My tutors are very supportive, knowledgeable and expert, and I received the same quality of teaching as I would in a classroom.’’
