Summary:

This course is not offered for 2012-13.

The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) is the professional personnel management organisation in the UK. It has a history stretching back over 70 years, and is the leading authority on human resource management with qualifications highly valued by personnel practitioners.

The PDS is a syllabus based qualification and candidates are required to complete assignments and examinations in their chosen area of study plus a work-based project. Skills development is an important factor throughout the study period.

Course Code: H4661 Entry Requirements:

This is a postgraduate level qualification and you will be expected to be able to study and complete assessments appropriate to this higher level of learning. Ideally you will have some experience of learning at degree level or equivalent, or be willing to undertake a short course which develops your higher learning capabilities. It is usual that you will first discuss with the Course Director the suitability of the course to your career development, and the approaches to study required to achieve this professional award.Part Exemption/Accreditation
If you already hold a relevant qualification at Masters level (including competence based), or have significant experience in a relevant area, you may be eligible for part or whole exemption from Field 1.

Core Skills:

The CIPD has developed a set of Professional Standards which define the knowledge, skills and competencies which are required of students who aspire to membership of the institute, and which can be used as a universal measure of practitioners. The aim of the CIPD Professional Development Scheme is to produce HR professionals who can contribute to their organisations as 'thinking performers': • Thinking - that is both operational and strategic, and not limited to their current organisation level, and with an appreciation of their organisational strategy.
• Performer - showing operational capability at a business unit level, in the further corporate aims.

Full Description:

Successful completion of all four fields will qualify you as a graduate of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (Grad CIPD). You will also be eligible to apply for corporate membership of the Institute (MCIPD) subject to qualifying experience. If you meet the requirements of one of two fields you will qualify as a Licentiate of the CIPD (Lic. CIPD).

The Professional Development Scheme is particularly appropriate if you are:

• Currently in a personnel management or related role and wishing to develop your knowledge and expertise in the field.

There are four fields to the CIPD Professional Development Scheme:

• Field 1 (Year 1) Leadership and Management
• Field 2 (Year 2) People Management and Development
• Field 3 (Year 3) Generalist Personnel and Development
• Field 4 (Year 3) Management Report and CPD Record

FIELD 1: LEADERSHIP AND MANAGEMENT 'Leadership and Management' provides you with the knowledge and understanding not only to manage at your own operational level, but to do this always with a strategic perspective. You will also develop a critical and analytical approach to problems, and providing solutions through the synthesis of ideas and experience drawn from as wide an arena as possible. The emphasis through the programme will be on applying skills and knowledge to the analysis and resolutions of management issues relevant to your own organisation. You will also identify your own individual learning needs throughout the course.

The four modules are:
• Managing and leading people
• Managing for results
• Managing information for competitive advantage
• Managing in a strategic business context

FIELD 2: PEOPLE MANAGEMENT AND DEVELOPMENT This is the vital integrative element of the CIPD Professional Development Scheme. It is now increasingly common for practitioners to move between functions and organisations through their working lives. As a consequence, it is important that all personnel and development practitioners are aware not only of their own area of expertise, but also of the wide contribution which personnel and development can make to organisational success.

FIELD 3: GENERALIST PERSONNEL AND DEVELOPMENT The standards must be met in the following four elective modules:
• People Resourcing
• Employment Law
• Employee Reward
• Employee Relations

FIELD 4: THE MANAGEMENT REPORT & CPD RECORD • You will be required to complete a management report (around 7000 words) in an HRM area of your choice. There will be some formal input sessions and informal workshops, but the bulk of the work will be Research and Field based.
• You will also need to provide evidence of an up-to-date Continuous Professional Development Record.
