Recording, Analysing and Using HR Information (2 credits)

  • This unit develops your understanding of the important contribution that accurate data can make to the HR or L&D function. The unit is intended to span the remit of data management for all areas including, but not limited to, HR planning, recruitment and selection, performance and reward management, absence management, disciplinary and grievance procedures and electronic record management for L&D.

Resourcing Talent (6 credits)

  • Organisational success depends on having the right skill mix. This unit provides an introduction to the resourcing and talent planning process. Studying this unit will enable you to understand the factors that impact on an organisation's resourcing and talent planning activities. You will also learn about the relationship between recruitment and selection by identifying the key stages in each separate but related process.

Developing Yourself as an Effective HR/L&D Practitioner (4 credits)

  • This unit is designed to enable you to develop a sound understanding of the knowledge, skills and behaviour required of a professional practitioner. It will enable you to develop a personal development plan, following a self-assessment of learning and development needs that meets your personal and professional requirements.

Delivering Learning and Development Activities (6 credits)

  • This unit will provide the knowledge and skills required to deliver planned L&D activities, for example one-to-one, small group and large group sessions. The need for learning and development arises for diverse reasons, including both individual self-assessment and organisational assessment. A learning and development needs analysis may identify organisational challenges or problems affecting employees, for example, major organisational change, the introduction of new operations or systems and/or the maintenance of existing operations or systems.

Supporting Good Practice in Performance and Reward Management (6 credits)

  • This unit provides an introduction to the purpose and processes of performance and reward management and the role of HR in promoting and supporting good practice. Studying this unit will enable you to develop your understanding of how motivational theories and associated tools can be used within the context of performance and reward management and how these can have a positive impact on an organisation's business objectives.

Supporting Good Practice in Managing Employment Relations (6 credits)

  • Managing the employment relationship effectively is a key part of the role of the HR practitioner. This unit aims to introduce a number of aspects of this task and 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.

Supporting Change within Organisations (3 credits)

  • This unit covers the main factors that need to be considered in the change process and will enable you to understand why organisations need to change with reference to key internal and external factors. Change concepts and different ways of managing change will be introduced.

FAQs

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At reed.co.uk courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on reed.co.uk, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as ABC Awards and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
