‘I chose MOL because of the flexibility it offered. I didn’t need to go to a college all the time, so I could plan studying around my life. I knew I could contact my tutors in the evening and at weekends if I needed to.
The workshops were wonderful
‘The workshops were wonderful, and genuinely interactive. The tutor encouraged us to network and share ideas and examples. The tutor is a working HR professional, so she was able to relate the theory to real life examples.’

Julie Webber CIPD award winner
Julie Webber studied on an advanced MOL human resources (HR) programme. She won a Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) award for the highest mark in the national exams. Julie is a human resources (HR) manager. She says she chose MOL for her training because of our impressive success rates.
‘I researched a number of providers and decided to enrol with MOL for my qualification. I was impressed with MOL’s success rates and the availability of tutors after office hours. This was a real benefit because I did most of my study after work.
‘MOL was ideal because I didn’t need to travel to evening workshops every week. I could study at a time and pace that suited me. I stayed motivated, knowing there were exams at the end and passing the programme would be great for my career.
The tutor was excellent and made a real difference
‘The materials were comprehensive, the modules were well focused and the practical elements, including a mock tribunal, were very useful. The tutor was excellent and made a real difference. I found the work on employment law particularly interesting. It was a fantastic module and I learnt a huge amount.’
Julie has this advice for prospective students:
‘Complete as many practice exam papers as possible to fully understand what an examiner is looking for. Don’t just learn the necessary topics - understand the key theories attached to them. Look for examples in your own organisation and others. Plan goals for the programme, but remember that there may be challenges to resolve along the way.’
