After moving to the UK, Kristin enrolled on a CIPD Level 5 qualification to help her get more acquainted with people practice and employment laws in the UK.
I started my course with ICS Learn a couple of months ago when my partner and I decided to move to the UK. I am from the US, and I have been working in Canada as an HR Manager for the last year. I wanted to take this course to get more acquainted with people practice and employment laws in the UK, so that I was best prepared to undertake employment here.
I chose ICS Learn because of how responsive and informative their staff were when I inquired about the qualification and because it was available fully online.
I am currently earning my Level 5 Diploma in People Management and I am thoroughly enjoying it. The content is relatable to my previous work experience, but I feel like it is already elevating my knowledge and helping me to develop my people practice skills even further.
Being fully online is perfect for me because I started this course outside of the UK, and I love that I can work at my own pace and manage my time in a way that best suits me.
Having access to ICS Learn tutors and community chat boards with other students have been extremely helpful, and I have never felt alone in this process.
As a people practitioner my aim has always been to help provide employees with a healthy, rewarding work environment. I love working with organisations to help improve their employee experience and develop a positive company culture, and it is my hope to take my career further in this direction.
I already feel that I am gaining more knowledge and capabilities in these areas, and I believe that with this qualification I will become a more proficient people practitioner and gain the confidence needed to take on the challenges in this field.
I am excited to see where this journey takes me and very happy to have the support of the ICS Learn staff along the way!
