The CIPD is the foremost HR Institute in the world, and for anyone wishing to pursue or further their career within the field of HR or HRDOC, it is essential that a CIPD postgraduate qualification is obtained for those leading change and developing people in organisations.
Most organisations who recruit HR professionals require applicants to either hold a CIPD qualification or be studying to achieve one.
There are elements of training design and delivery incorporated within the programme, so as to enable students to be able to plan and prepare a business case for selling new ideas, concepts and products within an organisation. The core disciplines of internal and external marketing presentations are identical.
This course is essential for anyone engaged in the development of organisations through staff and stakeholders in current and future economic climates of change. Failure to understand the underpinning theories and practice of HR Development and Organisational Change will result in organisations failing to work in a proactive manner, become leaner and fitter, and maximise its human resource effectively and efficiently.
