There is a growing recognition that an organisation's success is critically dependent on effective management of its employees. Whether in the competitive world of commercial business, or the changing and challenging context of the public and not-for-profit sector, it is increasingly vital to have skilled, committed and empowered employees, who gain satisfaction from meeting the goals of the organisation. To achieve this is not easy - professional human resources management practioners can play a vital role in bringing their unique expertise to bear on the challenges presented.

This dynamic course gives you the opportunity to develop as a professional practitioner, able to provide a high level of practical expertise in contributing effectively to the achievement of successful human resource management.
The course will enable you to explore the research and debates about human resource management practices that are fundamental to organisations in contemporary society, as well as attempting to answer the critical questions posed. You will assess current thinking within this rapidly developing field, at both operational and strategic levels.

You will develop a strategic view of the human resource management, learning to recognise the key people management implications of corporate goals and problems to analyse data using relevant techniques and knowledge, and to develop action plans for practical implementation. Through a blend of studying key ideas and theories, case study work and practical investigations of business situations, you will develop the professional experience to make an invaluable contribution to effective organisational management.

On successful completion of this course you will be well-placed to pursue a career as a professional human resource practioner in areas such as employee resourcing, training and develpment, employment relations and reward management.

The course enables you to gain Graduate Membership of the Chartered Instituate of Personnel and Development, which is increasingly essential for career progression within this professional field.

During this course you will:
* Experience a course accredited by the CIPD, but with all assessment taking placing within the University and no external examinations
* Mix with other postgraduate students in a unique environment
* Benefit from a blended learning approach, combining up-to-date use of electronic media with traditional tuition and access to well-stocked library resources

Areas of study you may cover on this course include:
* Managing and leading people
* Managing for results
* Business environment and performance
* People resourcing
* Employee reward
* Learning and development
* Employee relations
* People managing and development
* Research methods

The overall strategy is to achieve a balance between the assessment of academic understanding and evaluation and the assessment of competences and skills that are valuable in organisations. All modules, except for research methods, contain one coursework assignment and one unseen assessment. The coursework assignment will normally be based upon or related to their own workplace situations. There are two items of assessed coursework for Research Methods, the research proposal and a critical analysis of research methodology. Assessments are structured to ensure that the Programme / Unit aims and objectives are achieved and clear indications are given on the assessment brief relating to the specific learning outcomes.

In this way transparency is ensured. The assessments are designed to test and assess knowledge and understanding of the appropriate subject matter as well as to demonstrate the range of skills identified in Section 7. Assessment is organised to be motivational as well as an integral learning opportunity and is benchmarked to ensure that both the standards of the University and the CIPD are upheld. Formative continuous feedback and assessments are built into the programme to ensure that progressive feedback is given to students to help build confidence, skills and knowledge on a continuous basis; a common method of achieving this is through group work and feedback involving self assessment and constructive criticism during the formal tutorial sessions. Summative assessments provide measures of achievements and there will be one of these built into each module. These assessments are directly related to the modules learning outcomes, which incorporate CIPD standards.
