HR Studies

Human Resources play a fundamental role in modern businesses in developing the business strategy and the handling of employee-centred activities.

Critical human resources activities covered in these courses include workforce planning; attraction, recruitment, selection and induction activities; developing and implementing performance management processes; consulting and mediating employee relations issues and ensuring a safe workplace environment for all employees.

Certificate-level courses reflect the role of individuals entering into the human resources team and whose work focuses on supporting the Human Resources Manager, employees and their line manager in relation to human resources functions. The Diploma of Human Resources Management course is designed to meet the needs of students who are currently working in human resources and wish to advance their career as a Human Resources Manager or hold these roles already and wish to gain professional qualifications. The Advanced Diploma of Management (Human Resources) reflects the role of individuals who provide strategic directions in human resource activities across an organisation. They work with other strategic leaders to ensure the objectives of the organisation are achieved.
