Human Resource Development and Consultancy
This course focuses on human resource development (HRD): A strategic approach to people management and organisational development, designed to enhance learning, skills, personal development and performance within the workplace. The design of this programme recognises that the barriers that once separated specialists in areas such as training, management development and organisational learning are disappearing, while new approaches, such as talent and knowledge management, are gaining increasing traction in both academic and practitioner communities. You will gain an understanding of relevant organisational and management theory, whilst examining contemporary developments within the HRD field. There is a particular focus on ensuring you are aware of the importance of acting ethically and professionally with a demonstrated commitment to equality of opportunity and diversity and appreciate the importance of continuous personal and professional development. The programme is recognised by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD).
