    For those wishing to build a career in training, and learning and development, the course gives you the choice to specialise at the dissertation stage for the human resource development qualification.

    This course also qualifies you for graduate membership of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD). This is the recognised professional qualification for human resource practitioners.

    The course begins by placing the study of HRM in its internal and external context. We then introduce you to organisation theory and other social science disciplines relevant to the organisation and management of work.

    You then study specialist theory and practice in key areas of HR such as • people resourcing • performance and reward management • employee relations • individual and organisational learning.

    You also learn the skills needed to manage and interpret information and to use management accounting tools.
