Your Route to MCIPS

Which format is best for me?

 

ESSP offers  four routes to gaining MCIPS.

Gold Mode - Day Release

This mode of delivery is for students who are able to get day release from their employer and offers the highest level of support.

The course consists of 5 days tuition per unit, one of which is revision for the exams. The timetable is arranged so that students study one unit per exam series enabling them to concentrate on one subject at a time. We try to arrange the timetable so that students only have to be released from their workplace on one day per fortnight. It is expected that students will study for a further three hours per session in addition to attending the course.

The exam results for this mode of delivery are excellent.

The lectures take place at our centre in Ipswich, an excellent venue with car parking. The fee includes all refreshments; there is easy access by road or a short walk from Ipswich Station.
Gold Mode – Evening Class

This mode of delivery is for students who are unable to get day release from their employer but would like to be supported in their learning. The sessions are delivered at our partnership site, West Suffolk College, Out RisbyGate, Bury St Edmunds IP33 3RL

The course consists of 8 evening’s tuition per unit. The timetable is arranged so that students study one unit per exam series enabling them to concentrate on one subject at a time. It is expected that students will study for a further four hours per session in addition to attending the course.

The exam results for this mode are excellent, with many of the students gaining a merit or distinction.

Silver Mode – Blended Learning

This mode of delivery is based on the on line materials that have been developed by CIPS. Upon enrolment, learners will be registered with the CIPS on line learning materials in addition to being supplied with the Profex Study books. They will be sent a study timetable and details of access to their tutor. Learners will be invited to the course induction day; their tutor will maintain contact and assess their homework with feedback.

In addition students are invited to the day release revision days –a chance to interact with other students, gaining valuable networking opportunities as well as all important tutor support.

Bronze Mode -  Distance Learning

This mode of delivery offers students complete flexibility for their studies. This route will take students one to two years to complete; it relies on the student carrying out self study for 50 hours per unit- this equates to 3 hours of self study per week in addition to revision for the exams.

Upon enrolment, students will be sent a timetable, study materials and details of access to their tutor. Their tutor will maintain contact with reading, exercises and past examination papers. The examination papers are assessed and feedback is sent back to the student.

In addition, students are invited to the day release revision days, one per unit, normally one week prior to the exams.

The examination results for this mode have been excellent with 100% pass rates.
