Human Resource Management - Teesside University

**Summary**: Human resources are the heart of every organisation and the nature of human resource management (HRM) has shifted dramatically since its establishment as the discipline of personnel administration in the first quarter of the 20th century. **Course details**: With the function moving from its former labour relations role to become a true business partner, the need for human resources professionals to be more strategic in outlook has emerged. This programme equips you with an awareness of contemporary HRM issues in readiness for being a future-thinking practitioner with cutting-edge knowledge of human resources development. Between Year 2 and your final year, you have the opportunity to spend a year in industry on placement, or study abroad at one of our partner institutions. **After the course**: We provide an environment that allows you to develop the ‘extra’ practical employability characteristics that will make you more interesting to employers in the job market in the years to come. All programmes are designed to incorporate employability skills development alongside your degree course. Our staff utilise their extensive business connections to provide many and varied opportunities to engage with potential employers through fairs, guest lecture sessions, live projects and site visits. We offer a series of workshops and events in the first, second and third year that ensure all students are equipped with both degree level subject knowledge and the practical skills that employers are looking for in new graduate recruits. We also offer extensive support for students to find and secure industry year placements which have been shown to make have significant positive impact on a student’s career prospects on graduation. Our award-winning careers service works with regional and national employers to advertise graduate positions, in addition to providing post-graduation support for all Teesside University alumni.
