Q: How do I submit my CIM assessments?


Please continue to work on your assignments as normal for the next submission, which is July 2020. We will let you know in due course how these should be submitted and/or if there are any amends made to the guidance in your Learning Zone portals. 

Q: I was booked to sit a CIM exam in March 2020. What will happen to my booking now?


Exams: All exams for April are cancelled. All April bookings have been moved to July by the CIM free of charge.

CIM July exams For the moment, you should assume these are going ahead but we will of course keep you in the loop as we hear more.

  • Strategic Marketing exam for July will use the April Task 1, that is on customer service. This means that all those sitting the exam in July will have the same Task 1.

There are no changes to the way you submit your CIPR assignments. These are emailed direct to as normal. 

Q: I was supposed to be attending classes in April / May. What happens now?


Classes are being rescheduled or moved to online learning. If you are booked on a class, the College will contact you by email, with further details on what to do / new class dates. We are updating our website with new information as and when it becomes available.

For classes that are being moved to virtual learning, tutors will run live online sessions instead of face to face classes and will contact you directly with details.

Q: What happens if I'm moved to online learning for now?


Your personalised Learning Zone area can be accessed at any time to suit you and tutors will continue to support you remotely for each module. You can email your tutor at any time, as normal, and set-up Skype or telephone calls to suit both parties.

Please be aware that during this time we may have to re-allocate tutors at short notice to accommodate any illnesses but we will of course keep you updated on any news as it happens and will contact you direct.
