What opportunities will this course give me?

If you are interested in further study you can progress to the Intermediate level Certificate/Diploma in Human Resource Management (level 5).

What will I be learning?

The additional units studied for the Diploma in Human Resources Practice will extend your foundation HR skills and knowledge.
You will study:
* Supporting good practice in managing employment relations (6 credits)
* Supporting change in organisations (3 credits)

This course will run on a Thursday evening from 5.30pm - 9.30pm for 9 weeks over the period from January 2018.

Why is this course for me?

The units studied are split 50:50 between class based study and self study. College study will be a mixture of taught sessions, discussions and practical work. Apart from class time you need to spend an average of 4 hours per week undertaking research or completing assessment tasks.
Each unit requires the completion of an assessment which may be a mix of written work and practical skills. These will be marked by your lecturer and be internally and externally verified.

What do I need to sign up?

This top-up course is suitable for those who have completed the CIPD Certificate in Human Resources Practice and wish to extend their learning at level 3.
You need to hold the CIPD Certificate in Human Resources Practice and have not already studied the MER and SCO units.

You need to be a student member of the CIPD whilst studying. The tutor will advise you of how to re-join or amend your membership at the start of the course.

A pre-entry requirement for new starters to CIPD courses at Eastleigh College is the completion of an initial and diagnostic assessment in English.

Is there anything else I need to know?

Stationery and memory stick.
