About the Course

HR Professionals in this role are typically either working in a medium to large organisation as part of the HR function delivering front line support to managers and employees or are an HR Manager in a small organisation. Their work is likely to include handling day-to-day queries and providing HR advice; working on a range of HR processes, ranging from transactional to relatively complex, from recruitment through to retirement; using HR systems to keep records; providing relevant HR information to the business; working with the business on HR changes.

 

They will typically be taking ownership for providing advice to managers on a wide range of HR issues using company policy and current law, giving guidance that is compliant and where errors could expose the organisation to employment tribunals or legal risk. In a larger organisation, they may also have responsibility for managing a small team – this aspect is outside the scope of this apprenticeship and will need to be covered separately by the employer.

Course Overview

As part of the HR Support Programme, you will be required to develop Knowledge, Skills and Behaviours in the below areas within your organisation:

  • Developing yourself as an effective human resource or learning and development practitioner
  • Understanding Organisations and the Role of Human Resources
  • Recording, Analysing and Using Human Resources Information
  • Resourcing Talent
  • Supporting Good Practice in Managing Employment relations
  • Delivering Learning and Development Activities

Course Delivery

The course will typically be completed over a 15-month period, which will include weekly knowledge delivery face-to-face and through webinar sessions.

 

The learners will also be observed in the workplace on at least 2 occasions to identify the standards of competence that are being met. There will also be recorded professional discussions covering competence towards the standard.

 

The tutor will complete a progress review in the first 6 weeks and every 10-12 weeks thereafter, which will require the Employers presence. All work will be stored on an electronic portfolio ready to be submitted to the End Point Assessment Organisation.
