Course Summary

About the courseHow and where people want to work is changing. Organisations need to quickly respond to external factors. Whether they are routed in Government policies, environmental issues, or changes in society. Our world is complex, and the challenges faced by organisations need an innovative approach. The course offers an opportunity to develop a more in depth and advanced insight into human resource management (HRM). This is achieved with a focus on consultancy skills and an exploration into a HRM issue with a major project.

Central to this course are the themes of how to manage change and personnel development. Human resource (HR) practitioners need to think in radical ways to manage diverse attitudes and motivations of people entering the labour market. As a HR practitioner, you’ll need to find solutions to critical issues. You’ll work across departments to promote inclusive and productive environments, enabling the employee and organisation to thrive.

The intrinsic link between human resource management, an organisation’s strategic and operational requirements, and the impact on society, can be powerful. This course will give you the tools you need to improve a range of issues, from global and national equality to climate change. New ways of thinking about work and the role organisations play in the world is crucial. We will guide you to become a critical, inspiring leader of the future, starting today. You will be able to immediately apply the learning to the workplace.

CareersThis course will give you everything you need to become a critical, practical, ethical and sustainable HRM practitioner or consultant in human resource management. It will particularly appeal to those interested in a career in human resource management, industrial/employment relations and also to those responsible more generally for managing people in organisations.

The advanced research route helps you to develop advanced research and consultancy skills, relevant to developing as a business-facing HRM practitioner.
