About Us

A Leader in Children’s Services Training

Each student is allocated to one of our experienced trainers to support them through the course as well as having access to any of our other trainers through web chats and forums. Students will receive one on one support from their trainer, comprehensive written feedback on all assessment tasks, plus opportunities to be actively involved in online chats to trainers and access to virtual classrooms. We also maintain an up to date Facebook page with lots of interesting links and other bits that really add value to the learning experience. Our Trainers.

Our Approach to Education

We pride ourselves on offering more support and services than our competitors and as a result have an exceptionally high completion rate. Training with ICCC is a complete experience where students are able to access the information and support they need to feel confident in the outcomes of their training.
