This CIPD award of professional competence will give you the skills and knowledge needed in managing difficult employment situations at work and changing the working climate. The course covers the key aspects of employment law and employee relations required by HR professionals, line and owner managers.
The course is highly practical applying case law to real life situations. On completion participants will be able to deal with such issues as poor performance, dismissals, redundancies, equality and organisational climate. An innovative assessment structure is in place which promotes both the understanding of academic principles and the application of skill. Assessment is by means of skills demonstration, projects and case assignment.
This course will be delivered online from September 2020, students can join classes from any location in Ireland.
This part-time CIPD course is suitable for those who are working in HR or for those with experience in some aspects of HR who wish to further their career. Given the importance of the issues, the course will also appeal to those working at line manager level or those running a small business with no HR unit in place.
The course is not suitable for those who have already completed the CIPD Diploma in Human Resource Management.
