About the Programme

  • The Diploma in Human Resource Management is intended for training and HR practitioners who wish to enhance their existing skills and knowledge through the application of theory to practice.

  • The programme covers topics such as Examining organisational behaviour, HRM, employee relations and employment development, which allow you to debate the importance of the HR function and whether HR needs to be linked directly to organisational structure to work effectively.

  • The full Diploma programme consists of 12 modules, which are assessed by assignments. Alternatively, a Certificate holder would pursue 6 modules, which builds on existing academic experience gained from the Certificate or other broadly equivalent courses.


  • On completion of the Diploma HRM, graduates will be able to demonstrate how an understanding of the issues involved in HRM can assist the HR manager in managing staff effectively. They will gain the skills to compare and contrast formal and informal learning, be able to discuss the merits of each, and discuss how effective employee development can impact upon an organisation’s performance.
