Developing yourself as an effective HR practitioner

You will put together your own personal development plan to underpin your learning on the programme following a self-assessment of your learning needs.
Understanding organisations and the role of HR

By the end of the unit you will have developed your understanding of how HR activities support organisational strategy and assist the achievement of business objectives.
Recording, analysing and using HR information
This unit will help to develop your understanding of the importance of accurate data and how it can be used by the HR function. It will include: monitoring staffing levels; HR planning; recruitment planning; diversity monitoring; using data to track performance and development; absence management; electronic and paper based record management. It will also cover the legal implications of storing HR data and will enable you to record data and information and to interpret, analyse and present information clearly and accurately.
Organisational success depends on having the right people in the right roles. This unit looks at the processes organisations use to resource and retain talent. You will learn about the relationship between recruitment and selection identifying the key stages in each process. The benefits of attracting and retaining a diverse workforce will be explored. Key legislation relating to recruitment and selection will be covered and you will also learn more about good practice in induction and retention.
Supporting good practice in managing employment relations
This unit aims to provide an introduction to employment law within the context of employee relations. It starts with an explanation of the employment relationship and the key parties that are involved within it. It then focuses on different aspects of HR activity, looking at good practice and legal requirements within each activity. It is recognised that learners need to have a basic understanding of employment law to enable them to operate effectively, but given this is a broad and complex area, it is acknowledged that this unit only aims to provide learners with the basic knowledge and assumes no prior understanding of employment law.
Delivering learning and development activities
This core unit will provide the knowledge and skills required to deliver planned Learning and Development (L&D) activities, for example one-to-one, small group and large group sessions. This unit will review adult learning principles and the learning cycle, but the main focus will be on the importance of creating and maintaining a positive learning environment and the knowledge and skills required for the actual delivery of an activity or session.
