If you want to develop a career in human resource management or employment relations and are looking for both an academic qualification and professional membership of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD), then this course is for you.
About the course
Focusing on contemporary, critical and applied themes in the subject area, the course gives you the opportunity to develop the knowledge and understanding necessary for the appropriate analytical, technical and behavioural responses to these issues.
The stages of the programme
The advantage of this course from the Hertfordshire Business School is it offers students the chance to study just four modules to gain a Postgraduate Certificate (PgCert) in Human Resource Management from the University.
If you wish to take your study further and focus on the subject in more depth, by completing a further four modules including an HR Management Research Report you will ‘top up’ your PgCert to a Postgraduate Diploma (PgDip) and meet the requirements of the CIPD Advanced Diploma in Human Resource Management and so be eligible to apply for Chartered Membership of the CIPD.
At this level you will also meet the requirements of the CIPD Advanced Diploma in Human Resource Management and so be eligible to apply for Chartered Membership of the CIPD.
The Hertfordshire Business School is approved by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) to enable students who successfully complete the programme to meet the equivalent requirements of the CIPD Advanced Diplomas in Human Resource Management or Human Resource Development, and so be eligible to apply for Chartered Membership of the CIPD.
The programme will appeal particularly 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.
We offer a varied programme of teaching that includes facilitated seminars, practical workshops, web-based learning, case study analysis and traditional lectures. We also provide sessions by visiting staff, practitioners and consultants to give a varied perspective of the topics covered.
Assessment is by a combination of coursework and examination.
