|Summary||Human Resource Management is not only one of the core functions of management but also the context within which training and development is located in many organisations, regardless of sector or size. The close relationship between human resource management and the management of training and development requires training and development professionals to have a developed understanding of key concepts, theories and good practice in HRM.
In this course, the UK will be used as the common illustrative context within a framework of the wider European and international scenes. The course aims to develop an informed knowledge and understanding of how HRM can contribute to improvements in organisational performance and add value through positive interaction with the wider range of management functions.
