Learning, teaching and assessment
Teaching on the Employment Relations programme is provided by our world-renowned specialist staff using a number of methods including lectures, practical workshops, seminars, group work, individual tutorials and feedback sessions. Modules are assessed by a range of methods including both exams and coursework assessments that are designed to develop strong practical and academic skills.
Most large organisations in both the public and private sectors employ employment relations specialists.
The grounding in Employment Relations and UK employment law, in addition to a grounding in more general HRM, that the programme provides also means graduates will be well equipped to bring expertise to both specialist Employment Relations and more general HR and management roles in both private and public sector organisations.
