The Diploma in Human Resource Practice is a new qualification released by The Chartered Institute of Personnel Development, which you can choose to study at either our Bangor or Rhos-on-sea campus, or at the Management Centre in Bangor University.
It is aimed at professionals who want to, or are already in a management position within HR.
The course focuses on developing individual HR skills in contemporary human resource related subjects. Emphasis will be on how HR management links with organisational strategy and its integration with line management.
Studying a CIPD qualification at intermediate level will provide you with the knowledge required for new Associate professional level of CIPD membership. If you then have the relevant experience, you can apply for a membership assessment (assessing your workplace activities and behaviours).
If successful with the assessment, you’ll be upgraded to new Associate. In addition to the formal qualification, you will have gained an insight into the competencies and skills that are necessary to become a modern HR manager.
You will also have gained invaluable experience from others who have been on the course with you.
You will study the following subjects throughout the year. Each subject involves lots of classroom discussion and interaction amongst students. All modules are taught by experienced staff that have extensive, operational knowledge in their field.
