For these reasons, Computer Science is as relevant to a student studying Arts subjects, as it is to one studying Science subjects.

Another is to introduce the key operational tools, techniques and practices that organisations use to resource their organisations effectively. These encompass recruitment, selection, workforce planning, staff retention, succession planning, retirement and dismissal processes.

Resourcing and Talent Planning (Knowledge) Level 4+Cardiff

Course Overview

This unit can be delivered as a standalone award or as part of the Level 5 Intermediate Qualification in HR. The purpose of this unit is to provide an overview of the way different organisations are managing these activities and which are the most effective in the context of diverse and distributed locations.

A fundamental part of the human resource (HR) management role is concerned with the mobilisation of a workforce, taking responsibility for ensuring that the organisation is able to access the skills it needs at the time and in the places that it needs them to drive sustained organisation performance. This involves attracting, retaining and, from time to time, managing the departure of staff from the organisation. Achieving this requires insight-driven strategic and operational activity. Organisations are obliged to compete with one another to secure the services of a workforce in labour markets that are continually evolving. One of the major aims of this unit is thus to introduce learners to the strategic approaches that organisations take to position themselves as employers in the labour market and to plan effectively so that they are able to meet their current and anticipated organisational skills needs. Another is to introduce the key operational tools, techniques and practices that organisations use to resource their organisations effectively. These encompass recruitment, selection, workforce planning, staff retention, succession planning, retirement and dismissal processes.

Who Is This Course For?

This course is for anyone who wants to identify or refresh their understanding of the skills and behaviours essential for an HR professional. It is essential for individuals who are interested in meeting the requirements for a CIPD certificate or diploma and professional membership. It is suitable for those who:

•seek to develop a career in HR management and development
