Launching: 30 July 2021
Human resources has always been an all-encompassing function but most HR Managers would agree that there has been a seismic shift in what is being asked of them – especially since the pandemic.
It’s not just been understanding furlough – more often than not HR Managers are required to take a more active role in the strategic running of the organisation but often without any additional support or training.
That’s why, as producers of the popular HR for the Non-HR Manager Certificate, we knew we had to do something.
Introducing the HR Manager Certificate.
- Develop your skills to take on a senior managerial or leadership role within your organisation
- Understand what’s required of a modern HR leader including lessons learnt from the pandemic and future trends.
- Better manage core aspects of HR, including data protection, discipline and grievance, equality and diversity and termination of employment.
- Develop a robust mental health and wellbeing strategy to prevent stress and burnout as well as understanding your obligations as an employer.
How it works:
- Launching: 30th July 2021 with modules released weekly.
- The fully online course is delivered via our specialist learning platform – you will be able to access training videos, written materials, downloadable templates, examples and tools, and a test at the end to check your learning.
