This part-time course has been developed for human resources management practitioners who want to gain the qualifications for professional membership of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD). When you graduate you’ll be eligible to apply for associate membership of the CIPD.
Upon completing this course, you’ll be equipped with substantial knowledge of contemporary human resource management theory and the ability to apply that knowledge to real-life situations.
With the guidance of our expert academic team, you’ll acquire the necessary skills and competence to plan and manage HR activities at both an operational and strategic level in the public and private sectors. You’ll gain advanced knowledge in employment law, employment relations, organisational learning, resourcing and talent management as well as develop your business leadership skills to advance your HR career.
Throughout the course you will apply your knowledge to real business environments, working on live case studies and projects. The course is delivered through informal, interactive seminars and workshops with opportunities to network with regular guest speakers from practitioners and the CIPD.
We are looking for applicants who are currently in an HR role, have experience of people management and development, and who can apply theory to real-life situations.
The course is aimed at those with HR experience looking to study on a part-time basis. We also offer MSc Management with Human Resources for those wishing to study full-time.
“Our CIPDaccredited course is led by experienced academics and HR practitioners, and provides fantastic networking opportunities.”
