What you'll learn

Research and write an in-depth research project in an area that is of particular interest to you.
Study the strategic considerations and functional activities associated with resourcing individuals with talent and potential. You'll also look at how they might be retained and developed within the organisation using effective deployment of strategic and operational reward interventions.
Develop an ethically driven practice, and the skills to learn continuously as you adapt and develop in response to your working environments. This module is underpinned by the Professional Values and Behaviours defined by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD). These guidelines require HR practitioners to operate in a way which is principles led, evidence based, and outcomes driven. You'll explore how CPD (Continuous Professional Development) enhances individuals' skill sets, and how it facilitates essential HR skills. This module will also explore how CPD enables an individual to develop additional professional knowledge and understanding. Throughout this module you'll develop skills in self-assessment and reflective practice to prepare for an ever-changing organisational environment where you'll need to use ethical judgement and commercially focussed behaviours. You'll also practise considering equality, inclusivity and culture.
Focus on national and international perspectives of employment relations. You'll look at the cooperation and conflict that varies between workplaces, and how institutions beyond the workplace shape people management policy and practice within organisations. This module will also explore the care that must be applied to handling work-based relationships. You'll develop understanding of the major legal principles that underpin employment relations.
Study the importance of evidence-based, outcomes-driven and principles-led HR and people strategy and practice in the people and learning profession. This module will explore how people and learning professionals create value and deliver strategic and practical outcomes for organisations and employees. You'll understand how contributing to the achievement of business objectives improves performance and enhances the employee experience. This module will also focus on the need for policy and practice to be delivered coherently, in a way that is integrated and in-line with organisational objectives.
This module will explore the interactions between differing business environments, key stakeholders, and likely future developments in the world of work, employment policy and the management of people. You'll discuss a range of people practices such as ethics and sustainability, employee well-being, equality, diversity, inclusion, and the impact these issues have on working lives. You'll also examine how organisations respond to dynamic business contexts and the implications for people policies and practices, individual and organisational productivity and corresponding issues around organisational realignment, culture, and change management. This module will also develop your understanding of how you may approach a research project in this area.
