Course detailsCourse Overview
It is widely recognized that people are an organization's most valuable assets. However, in many organizations, people are also the most costly resource. Individual working patterns are changing as more people work from home, build portfolio careers, take sabbaticals, work flexible hours or are on short-term, fixed contracts. Organizations also face new challenges as the internet enables the smallest company to operate internationally and compete against multinationals. In addition, new technology such as mobile communication, social media, and outsourcing are changing how recruitment is carried out. For these reasons, companies invest in recruiting, HR training courses, developing and retaining the best people of the job. Thus organizations need experts with an understanding of human resource management and the skills to help them guide, support and manage this crucial business function.
This human resource program uses current and classic theory and research to develop a critical understanding of both the theory and practice of human resource management (HRM). The focus is on strategic and individual level improvements, through assessment of the role of HRM in modern organizations, the issues involved in developing strategic aims (including on an international basis), employment relations, and selecting, motivating, and developing staff. The Association of Business Practitioners (ABP) has worked with expert practitioners to develop online management courses as part of our Level 7 (Postgraduate) Diplomas in Strategic Human Resource Management to explore HRM issues from an international and global perspective.
As a leading HR college, the Westford School of Management offers a range of human resources and management training courses.
Westford delivers the course through different modes such as onsite, blended and distance mode using the state-of-the-art, live, interactive virtual platform. Delivery will engage students in their learning by using a range of teaching and learning techniques that accommodate different learning styles, including presentations, case studies, simulations, professional discussions, group activities, visits, guest speakers and independent research. Assessment will use vocationally relevant methods that require students to adopt a realistic work role and produce work in the formats that are expected in business. Examinations and assignments that use a range of assessment methods will be used. Case studies, problems and examples used in assessments need to be current and have the requisite range of issues for students to consider at this level of study. Students should be able to apply their understanding of theory to their investigations and to their proposed solutions to problems. Updated on 15 April, 2020
