International Correspondence School (ICS) Educate

North East Scotland College works in partnership with ICS to provide education and training to industry and commerce within the workplace. We deliver these courses to over 4,000 learners per year.

Courses are offered in two main ways:

12 Week Programmes

Training programmes are delivered to clients in their own workplace and the underpinning knowledge is supported with the use of high quality, user–friendly distance learning packages. Each learner has access to a personal tutor with work related experience to provide support. Accredited certification is achieved through a nationally approved awarding body, NCFE, and to obtain a certificate, students must achieve a pass in their work based project plus obtain 65% or greater in a Multiple Choice paper 'Knowledge Assessment' at the end of the course.

One Day Courses (New for 2012–13)

Short courses are becoming more popular as, in the current economic climate, employers and individuals often have less time and resource to invest in longer term learning activities. A quicker return on investment can be achieved using short courses which can address regulatory compliance, new staff induction requirements, share best practice and contribute to continuous professional development.
