LEADING online learning company ICS Learn experienced record levels of growth last year – with revenue rising 48%.
The company, which caters for over 11,000 students, saw its students invest £11.3m in courses ranging from A-levels to industry qualifications – a £3.59 million hike on the previous year.
Across its faculties, HR saw the biggest upturn with spend on courses increasing 60 per cent between 2015 and 2016, while Accounting rose by 55 per cent, and Marketing jumped 45 per cent.
ICS Learn’s Chief Executive Officer, Colin Kennedy, heralded 2016 as its “most successful year ever”.
He added: “We stay competitive by offering courses which take full advantage of the latest advances in digital technology – we recently expanded our offering to include a fully-online Personal Fitness qualification and were also the first to offer all levels of the HR CIPD qualification 100 per cent online.
“Our number of expert tutors has risen from 52 to 68 in the past year and we have made appointments across our product, services, admin, sales and marketing teams. Our ambitious growth strategy is ongoing with more recruitment in the pipeline as well as plans to target new international markets.”
ICS Learn provides courses across Accounting, Fitness, HR and A-levels and GCSEs and its client base includes Royal Bank of Scotland, Volkswagen, NHS 24, McDonalds and Arnold Clark.
As it moves into 2017 the company plans to actively target the Middle-Eastern and Asian markets and will be attending the HR Summit and Expo in Dubai later this year.
