The ICB learning experience is unique – our academic team has designed it to give you the best possible chance of learning effectively and passing your subject first time. But it’s not just about passing the exam. Our methodology makes sure you get a deep and thorough understanding of your course materials. So you don’t just get a qualification – you gain real skills that you can use in your job from Day 1.
The 4 tools to help you study during your course
Your PoE is one of the 4 tools that will help you to study your programme:
1 Portfolio of Evidence : Assignments and Tests
Learning Phase 1
Learning Phase 2
Learning Phase 3
Each subject is divided into 3 learning phases. You’ll do an ICB Assignment during each phase, and at the end of phases 1 and 2, you’ll complete an ICB Test, to test your knowledge. These tests have been set by the ICB and are standardised – all students must complete them.
Your final exam marks the end of the third learning phase. This integrated way of learning helps to prepare you (and is good practice) for your final exam.
Your college tuition, study material and support from your college are the other 3 tools to help you succeed in your studies. Check with your college which of these they offer:
2 College Tuition
3 Study Materials
4 Study Support from your College
Study groups, etc.
Your college will give you your course materials and textbooks, whether you are a classroom or distance learning student. If you chose to study independently, you’ll have to get your own textbooks and course materials.
If you have queries about the work, please speak to your training provider. They will be able to help you with questions about your subject content, theory, assignments, etc. If you’re an independent student and have chose NOT to study via a college, you will have to find the support you need yourself.
The ICB is strictly only the external examining body for these qualifications. To remain independent and fair, we cannot get involved in any support or tuition.
