In order to ensure that the ICB’s qualifications are relevant, a full academic review is undertaken to ensure that the syllabus and learning outcomes are up to-date in accordance with current legislation, payroll regulations and taxation requirements.  

With this in mind, the ICB, and the publishers of the tuition material update syllabus and material in January of each year. The impact for students is that you will be assessed on any changes from 1 April of each year.  The publishers of the tuition material release new material in January which enables students sufficient time to study the new curriculum and to be ready to be assessed from April onwards.  

The ICB's three programmes are detailed below:
