Human Resources Diploma Level 3

Course Synopsis
This OLQA Quality Assured Level 3 Diploma course is aimed at individuals with an interest in Human Resource issues. This could be either through a role as an individual working in HR, for those who wish to work in associated professions, or as a means to build on an existing knowledge base.

The aim of this course is to enable the students to acquire a thorough grounding in the principal subjects underlying the practice of Human Resources Management (HRM). The course consists of 10 modules, which progressively develop the students' knowledge of this complex, yet rewarding area.

Module Content
Module 1: Introduction to Human Resource Management (HRM)
The first module seeks to identify exactly what we mean when we use the term HRM, making a clear distinction between the practices of HRM and Personnel Management.

•The concept is traced from its early development through to the present day. 
•The two "schools" of HRM are then discussed and the differences between them identified. 
•This module is concluded by a brief consideration of the European context.

Module 2: The modern HRM environment
In this module students will analyse the factors surrounding the present HRM environment by considering a number of factors including:

•Recent public sector developments
•The Labour market
•Vocation training and education
At the conclusion of this module the student will have acquired a sound knowledge of the underlying background and will be able to place this subject within its true context.

Module 3: The contract of employment
The contract of employment is an all important topic, which is frequently given short thrift in HRM courses. Students will examine a number of important areas including:

•The nature of the contract of employment
•The importance of establishing the status of the worker
•The various criteria used in order to determine this question
•The influence of European law upon this area
The module contains a number of case based exercises to enable the student to test their understanding as they progress through the module.

Module 4: Contents of the contract of employment
Having established the paramount nature of the status question, the student will now consider the contents of the contract and the relative importance of different terms. Areas covered include:

•Mutual duties of employer and employee
•Distinctions between different contractual terms
•The concept of vicarious liability

Module 5: Termination of the contract of employment
This module examines the various routes through which the contract of employment can come to an end. In addition to unfair dismissal, the module explores:

•The basic considerations affecting redundancy
•The concept of frustration
•The common law view of dismissal

Module 6: Discrimination in Employment
This module considers not only the traditional areas of discrimination such as race and sex, but also examines more recent developments such as:

•Disability Discrimination
•Discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation
The entire area is placed within the context of European and domestic law.

Module 7: Trades Union and Industrial Conflict
In this module, we examine the following areas:

•What exactly do we mean by the term "trade union"
•How have these bodies developed throughout the course of history
•The legal status afforded to trades unions
•An outline of the area of industrial conflict

Module 8: Motivational techniques
This is very much a behavioural science topic wherein we turn our attention to:

•What do we mean when we use the term "motivation"
•A consideration of some of the barriers to motivation
•An analysis of the different "schools" of motivation i.e. content and process
•A detailed look at the work of leading theorists in this area

Module 9: Key human resource processes
In a more functional module, we turn our attention to a consideration of the main HRM processes which are the daily "bread and butter" of the HRM specialist including:

•Recruitment and selection
•Learning organisations
•Performance management

Module 10: Corporate Social Responsibility and Business Ethics
In this final module, we consider two relatively new concepts in relation to this area. The student will consider the potential responses by the HRM specialist to concerns such as environmental awareness and the pressures of national and international governments. The module proposes a number of steps which a responsible HRM specialist may espouse in order to display both its "green" and ethical credentials in the 21st century.
