The Complete Advanced Human Resources Diploma

HR professionals need to be familiar with laws governing common HR functions, such as managing employee sick leave and dealing with grievances. Failure to deal with HR issues in a timely manner can lower employee morale, impair productivity, increase turnover, drive up costs and even result in legal action. An ineffective HR department can also damage a company’s reputation. This bundle addresses key HR functions and how to handle challenges familiar to all HR professionals. These courses offer practical guidance to help you deal with sensitive matters in a tactful manner, bring disputes to a satisfactory close, clarify employees’ responsibilities and job roles, and help employees achieve a work-life balance.

What You Will Learn

This combined course includes the following:
  • Introduction to Contracts of Employment Certificate
  • Discipline & Grievance Certificate
  • Parental Rights Certificate
  • Sick Leave Certificate

Introduction to Contracts of Employment Certificate

When a new employee starts their job with a company, both parties will rely on a contract of employment to outline the terms and conditions governing the nature of the work and the rate of compensation. Contracts do not have to be written on paper, but it is common practice to draw up a formal written document. In this course, you will learn what should be covered in a contract of employment, the details an employer must report to HMRC when a new worker starts with their company and how the PAYE system facilitates payment for work completed. The course also addresses the impact of a worker’s status on the content of a contract and what happens if either party breaches the terms and conditions.

Discipline & Grievance Certificate

When an employee breaches the terms and conditions of their employment or raises a grievance at work, it is the employer’s responsibility to abide by their company’s discipline and grievance policies. Consistent and fair disciplinary protocols are essential in the maintenance of a pleasant and productive working environment. In this course, you will learn how to adopt a progressive approach to workplace discipline, how to conduct an appropriate and balanced disciplinary hearing, how to draw up fair policies, how to manage grievances on a formal and informal basis, and how to audit your procedures. You will learn how to adopt a proactive approach that will help resolve problems early on.

Parental Rights Certificate

The majority of employees will have at least one child at some point during their working lives, making parental rights a key issue for businesses. UK workers can elect to take Maternity, Paternity, Adoption and Shared Parental Leave. They are usually eligible for paid and unpaid leave. In this course, you will learn about employee entitlement and employer obligations under the law with regards to parental leave. The course will provide you with an overview of the benefits available to parents, how to calculate pay and time off work and the circumstances in which they can take unplanned, unpaid leave to care for close family members.

Sick Leave Certificate

All employees will fall sick from time to time, so every employer needs to be aware of the laws governing sick pay, self-certification, sick leave. They also need to be aware of best practices when welcoming an employee back to work. In this course, you will develop an understanding of how Statutory Sick Pay (SSP) works and how much an employee is entitled to receive. You will learn how and when someone can self-certify and the role of “fit notes” in coordinating SSP and sick leave. The course addresses the sensitive issue of dismissal following ill health and offers guidance on making reasonable adjustments for employees returning to work.

All businesses need to have a working understanding of relevant employment laws to ensure that all employees are treated fairly. In this course, you will learn what a worker is entitled to receive in terms of paid and unpaid leave, and how their employment rights are subject to protection while they are away from the workplace.

  • If you are a supervisor, this course will help you understand the rights of your team members and manage them accordingly

A contract of employment represents a fundamental agreement between an employer and worker. Therefore, it needs to be clear, fair and comprehensive.

This is a fantastic course! I really enjoyed it. The most useful module is about working with autistic children. There are lots of tips how to deal with autistic behaviour!

This course really helps me in my work as a support for the 4-old autistic boy in a nursery. Every day I use an imaginative role play to develop his social skills. It really works! This course also increases my knowledge about autism and other related conditions.

Thanks to all modules I could increase my English terminology about autism as well (I am Polish). I can recommend this course to all people who are interested in autism! Thank you very much for this course.

Monika Dudek

I rate this course very highly as this is a very in-depth informative online course that increased my knowledge in Marketing and has given me plenty of useful information to apply to my work.

It had a good framework of information followed by a worksheet so that you could test the knowledge that you’ve just learned. It provided a great deal of information broken down into easy to digest sections and was good value for money as well.

I would definitely recommend this course to others and I know that my brother has taken another course using this website also.

Hannah Pugh

The course covers all the necessary aspects of SEN education, and is produced in manageable modules for learning.

In terms of value and content, I would rate this as one of the best online diploma courses.

Ainsley Nugent

Whilst doing an internship in an Estate Agency, I decided to study the Estate Agent Diploma to gain a better understanding of the regulations and the best ways to go about visits and building my network. I found the course to be very comprehensive and easy to follow.

I’d recommend this to anyone looking to broaden their knowledge of the field of Estate Agency. I found the time estimates to be right if you are simply reading, but I took several pages of notes and so took longer, as I wanted to really understand what I was reading.

Overall, comprehensive and easy to follow.

Lauren Newall

The course is simple and easy to follow, the videos are a great way to see it all in action, the pictures are a great way for you to get some inspiration too especially with the nail art. I have referred this course to a friend already.

Lindsay Todd

A super user-friendly website, with very pertinent course content. Truly enjoyed the study material and the pace at which I could study was really great. I was delighted to receive my Diploma.

I had some technical problems along the way and contacted your student support team a couple of times and found them to be most helpful and the response time/turnaround was so quick.

I have also signed up to do the Events Planning Diploma and will definitely be studying further through your Academy. Once again a huge thank you – your support team are really helpful, friendly and efficient!!
