MSc in Industrial Relations and Workplace Learning
You will acquire the latest academic and professional knowledge in understanding employee relations and workplace learning. The central aim is to provide you with knowledge and skills relevant to address the significant changes taking place in the work of learning, training and human resource professionals, such as the need for practitioners to engage with a global and diverse workforce, and to understand resulting changes in the employment relationship. The course aims to foster critical evaluation and reflection on the use of existing techniques and new ideas, the contexts appropriate for such ideas, and the objectives for which they are used. Through critical reflection, we encourage students to reassess their role and that of other practitioners, as well as the contribution they make to their organisations in an international context. There is also an option at Module 3 to enhance this knowledge in the global or national comparative context, or to focus on organisational performance and skills. A key overall aim of this course is to develop the 'academically-informed' practitioner-researcher. As part of this, the course equips you with the necessary skills to undertake research work in the industrial relations, learning and training fields.
