Course Summary

This Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) accredited course is designed for those who want to pursue senior level careers in human resource management (HRM). We aim to cover the essential theoretical knowledge, intellectual frameworks and practical skills required by today’s employers in a range of business contexts. The management and development of human resources is a challenging task in any organisation. As the rapid pace of technological change continues, markets expand internationally and legislation becomes increasingly complex, the need to ensure both the business and its personnel adapt accordingly has become ever more important. Human Resource Management (HRM) examines the processes and principles associated with the management of work and people.

HR professionals and managers operate within increasingly complex and changing organisational and contextual circumstances, whether in the market, public or ‘third’ sectors irrespective of the size of their organisations or the types of goods or services provided. This programme of study has been designed to meet and reflect the CIPD’s professional standards and expectations, broadening your awareness of HR generalist and specialist functions in a UK and international context, considering how internal and external context impact upon HRM, the role of the HR practitioner and how HRM can lead to better work and better working lives. The design of the course is designed to help you select and focus on specific specialist areas of HRM or HRD, depending on your career specific aspirations within the human resources field. There will be opportunities to work with employers on problem-based assessments to gain experience producing policy documents relevant to the changing world of work.
