For the Diploma, you must complete eight modules comprising the four core modules plus four specialist modules. For your specialist modules, you will be required to choose between the HRM route or the HRD route.

Core Modules

  • HR Management in Context – You’ll gain an understanding of the environmental contexts of contemporary organisations within which managers, HR professionals and workers interact.
  • Leading, Managing and Developing People – This module explores people management and development and seeks to familiarise you with major contemporary research on employment and effective approaches to HR and L&D practice.
  • Developing Skills for Business Leadership– The key purpose of this module is to encourage you to develop a strong sense of self-awareness of your own strengths and development needs as a manager or colleague.
  • Investigating a Business Issue from a HR Perspective – You’ll get an understanding of the key elements of professional competency, including strategic awareness, business orientation and a concern with adding value through HR practice.

HR Management specialist modules:

  • Resourcing and Talent Management – This module focuses not only on the practical aspects of recruitment, selection, employee retention and dismissal, but also on the strategic aspects to equip you with the knowledge and skills required for resourcing and talent management within a global context.
  • Reward Management – This module examines total rewards in an organisational and international context and provides you with the knowledge and understanding of environments in which reward professionals plan, implement and evaluate employee reward policies to support strategic organisational goals.
  • Managing Employee Relations – This module will provide you with a comprehensive understanding of employment relations perspectives and debates, from a theoretical and behavioural competency perspective.
  • Employment Law – This module will provide you with the knowledge, understanding and skills required to brief organisations on the consequences of employment law development and give up-to-date and accurate advice concerning the practical application of legal principles that underpin UK (or Irish) and EU Employment Law.

HR Development specialist modules:

  • Learning and Talent Development – You will develop a critical understanding of the contribution of learning and talent development policies and strategies as well as intellectual, social, professional and personal skills to perform effectively in associated professional roles.
  • Designing, Delivering and Evaluating L&D Provision – This module develops a critical understanding of the role and influence of a range of contextual factors on the design, delivery and evaluation of the L&D plans and interventions.
  • Leadership and Management Development – This module focuses on the development of leadership and management in facilitating organisational, team and individual change and growth.
