Why choose a CIPD qualification?
The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development is the world’s largest professional body for those involved in the management and development of people. It has over 130,000 members across 120 countries, and 12,000 professionals train with CIPD qualifications and certifications each year. It's the gold standard for professional quality in Human Resources and Learning and Development.
This means that CIPD qualifications are highly respected and sought-after by employers. Many hiring managers include them as a prerequisite for HR jobs as they demonstrate a commitment to high standards of professionalism.
Why study accounting?
Accountancy is the language of business. By taking an AAT-approved course, you'll learn how businesses become successful and gain key insight into global business issues and international finance.
You'll develop skills in accounting, bookkeeping, business ethics, business accounting, budgeting and more. You'll also develop invaluable numerical and quantitative skills, and enhance your problem-solving and analytical ability.
Everyone has a different combination of skills, experience, education and ambition, so the best way to decide on the right course for you is to give our specialist AAT course advisors a call.
Student story | Laura Evans
I am currently working towards my Level 5 Diploma in Human Resource Management with ICS Learn, and I only have positive things to say about my experience so far.
I’ve already learned a great deal more about what I’m interested in, and with each passing month I feel more focused on pursuing my career in HR. I’ve implemented much of what the course has taught me into the company I work for, and my directors have already noticed the positive effects these are having on the development of our workforce.
Thank you to the ICS Learn team for being so fantastic. Such a likeable, accessible company and I’m so pleased I chose ICS Learn!
Student story | Anurag Rai
I have worked in restaurants as a manager for over 10 years. At one point I was running my own restaurant. Whilst running my own business I realized that I really enjoyed bookkeeping and various other financial sides of the business.
I now wanted to have a career in Accounting and Finance. I did a lot of research – browsed the internet, spoke to friends already in the sector and read various forums. I was then convinced that with no foundation knowledge in accounting, an AAT accountancy course was the best place to start for me. AAT courses are really good as they give you the flexibility to start at different levels based on your skills.
