Learning Outcomes

The overall objective of these diploma programme units is to help participants broaden their knowledge and skills in the area of HR practice with particular focus on:

  • Unit D1: Contributing to the Process of Job Analysis
  • Unit D2: Identifying Learning & Development Needs
  • Unit D3: Supporting Change Within Organisations
Course Content

The Diploma in HR Practice programme consists of three units as follows:

Unit D1: Contributing to the Process of Job Analysis

The overall focus of this unit is to develop the learner’s understanding of the principles and practice of job analysis and job design.  The unit content is designed as an introduction to the knowledge and skills required in the use of a number of methods of conducting job analysis. 

Unit D2: Identifying Learning & Development Needs

For individuals and their organisations to respond to changing environments and exploit emerging opportunities they need to ensure the quality and currency of their skills, knowledge and capabilities.  Taking a pro-active approach to identifying learning needs is a key part of this, and often the responsibility of the L&D practitioner.  This unit supports the development of the skills required to undertake an effective identification of others’ learning needs. 

Unit D3: Supporting Change Within Organisations

This unit covers the main factors that need to be considered in the change process and will enable learners 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.  People also respond to change in different ways and this manifests itself in variable behaviours.  This aspect will be given particular attention along with the implications for the human resources (HR) function.  

Assessment

The Diploma in HR Practice is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Personnel & Development (CIPD). There is no written examination for this programme. Assessment is by means of unit assignments the majority of which are written and where skills are being assessed these will be subject to workshop verification and assessment.

Other Information
