Course summary

Overview of the programme

Our course is specifically designed with busy professionals and their organisations in mind. The format of the programme requires attendance at a 2 day Induction and 1 day per month in University with 2 weekends per year for assessments. The course at Wrexham Glynd?r University provides a thorough understanding of the importance of delivering an effective employment relationship and the facets within it. This programme is approved by CIPD and graduates will achieve a CIPD level 7 award in addition to their MA Human Resource Management. The course is relevant for Human Resource Professionals in all types of organisation within the UK and internationally and aimed at experienced middle or senior level managers or HR professionals. Consequently they will have have relevant work experience and/or hold appropriate formal qualifications suitable for access to a Master’s programme.

The programme ensures that students, not only develop the knowledge they need, but also provides them with practical skills to apply that knowledge and develop as professional practitioners. The MA HRM Programme team are practitioners themselves, who work in various specialism’s within HRM. This means the tutors can support students with a real understanding of what it means to be an HR practitioner and are up to date in regards to what challenges organisations in a wide range of sectors. They can also easily demonstrate the links between theory and practice.

KEY COURSE FEATURES

Course Delivery – There are two modes of delivery, Distance Learning and Blended Learning with the only difference between the two modes being the tutorials. For Distance learning these will be asynchronous online forums, whilst Blended Learning students will attend once a month for face to face contact with the tutor. Narrated lectures, subject guides and supporting material will all be delivered online. Why? Flexibility. Busy working lives, and a turbulent environment mean that professionals don't have time for day release and it is reflective of how people want to learn in the digital age.

Residential Weekends - Which will take place once a trimester (5 during the programme in total) - these will be a mixture of experiential learning workshops designed to build skills and develop self awareness, visiting speakers sharing experience of HR in practice and application in practice sessions to demonstrate the connection between what the student has learned and what that means for them within their workplace through case studies, discussion and collaborative learning.

Mentoring programme throughout the Course - Students will be asked to nominate a mentor in their workplace who will become part of their programme of study with the development of learning contracts and scheduled mentoring sessions, the outcomes of which will form of part of the students Continuous Professional Development Record.

Throughout the course, students will have the opportunity to network and attend the CIPD conference, as well as accessdifferent levels of CIPD membership (depending on your progress through the course).
