I needed a change in my career so I start googling for some courses and found Home Learning college was offering what I wanted to - CIPD certificate, I choose to go for level 3 CIPD foundation certificate in HR practice. When I enroled I was scared, that I will not push myself to study, but it's really working!!! Now I'm so happy that I started studying, furthermore I landed a position with in recruitment section - as I always wanted. My personal observations that without these courses I wouldn't had made it to get new position. After I'm done with level 3, definitely will enroll to other courses with Home Learning College.

I started this course barbecue i wanted classes that i could watch as im pretty poor at reading. at first this was good but the layout started to change classes where not in the right order, named correctly and in some lay outs just flat out didn't make scenes. i.e. week 5 "name" Week 2 " name" Week 5 "Differant Name" Week 4 "name" this got me very confused and this never really changed. i found it harder and harder to get through the weeks plan because i couldn't find the classes, after i did i was fine. but fining the classes was plain stupid. if you just plan on reading the books they send you and nothing else sure but if not dont bother. the tests they send you are easy to guess the answers and the boxes can only fit the correct answer in so your not learning your just putting the only number that can fit in. finally as just a point to the company. check up on your learners to see how things are going and if they need assistance or anything, i have called at least 5 times because of the issues above and am now falling quite far behind. this isnt a must but could help with success rates and stop people like myself from just wanting to quite and go somewhere else to try again. if i get through this course i will not be coming back.
