    Programme Structure


    The taught input stage consists of six modules, running in three blocks of
    two modules from September in year one to December of year two.

    The modules are:
    - Managing Resources
    - Managing Performance
    - Managing Development
    - Managing Relations
    - Personnel and Development Strategy
    - Research Design Methodologies

    The above modules ensure coverage of the following CIPD electives (as
    well as People Management and Development).
    - Employee Resourcing
    - Management Development
    - Employee Relations
    - Performance Management

    This consists of a series of research support group meetings supported
    by individual tutor interviews which build upon the Research Design
    Methodologies module.

    Assessment for all ‘taught input’ stage modules (with the exception of
    Research Design Methodologies) consists of one two hour examination
    and one piece of coursework. The assessment for the Research design
    Methodologies module relates to the submission of an appropriate
    research proposal. Students are required to maintain continuous
    professional development logs throughout the programme. Assessment
    for the dissertation module is based upon a 20,000 word dissertation and
    a personal reflection on learning
