This unit offers students the opportunity to develop knowledge and understanding to ensure that an organisation has the skills it requires, at the time it requires them, to meet its strategic intent. Sustainable organisation performance and growth requires a constant reassessment of skills, requirements which will then inform the training and development of existing employees. However, there will always be the need to recruit new staff to support organisational growth or to replace those who leave. This unit focuses on the latter, and students will engage in learning that provides fundamental knowledge relating to recruitment, selection, succession planning and talent management.
- This course is offered in 50 contact hours.
Upon successful completion of this unit, learners will be able to:
- Analyse labour market trends and appropriate legal requirements which influence workforce planning.
- Determine current and anticipated skills requirements in varying contexts.
- Apply the appropriate documents and processes which contribute to effective recruitment and selection.
- Evaluate how to manage the human resource life-cycle within the context of an HR strategy.
