What our students say
" I looked at the local college but the fact that it would have been two nights a week, straight after work, didn't suit me. With the ICS course, I can work when I want. Some days I don't work much then other times I sit down and do a lot all together - you just fit it around yourself. And at the very least, the marketing qualification will be something extra on my CV!" Gwenda Darcy
