Overview
 

Prior study is not a prerequisite - you just need a passion for the subject matter!

Employment Law is the latest outstanding addition to our Business Professional series. The administration and management of any business depends on its people, and the way they are recruited, directed, compensated and eventually released. All of this is enshrined in law, governed by legislation and administered by recognised “best practice”. Fall foul of it and you may end up in front of an Employment Tribunal, paying thousands of pounds in compensation purely through ignorance (which, incidentally, is no defence).

MATERIALS
 

One of the key benefits of studying with My Distance Learning College is that, unlike other distance learning providers, we deliver the entire package of learning materials in a single dispatch.

This enables our students to get a real feel for the overall structure and content of the study pack, and chart their progress much more effectively. The modular method of delivery favoured by other providers fragments the learning process and actively prevents students from moving faster through sections they are more confident with, or taking more time over the deeper concepts that require more thought and comprehension.

REQUIREMENTS
 

A reasonable level of literacy is required, but there are no entry restrictions.

You just need a keen interest in the subject, and will ideally have studied the subject or ancillary disciplines at a lower level if you want to progress quickly.

Non-Regulated Qualification Endorsed by Focus Awards under the FQP Scheme
 

This is a non-regulated qualification endorsed by Focus Awards under their Focus on Quality Provision (FQP) Scheme.

Focus Awards is a member of the Federation of Awarding Bodies (FAB) and is regulated by Ofqual. Established 2011, Focus Awards is founded on three core values – Honesty, Integrity and Fairness – that underpin everything they do.

The FQP scheme is designed to give endorsement to non-regulated qualifications in a wide range of subjects. On successful completion you will receive a Focus Awards Certificate of Achievement and a Diploma from My Distance Learning College.

Although the materials are comprehensive and informative, we do expect you to carry out your own investigations. After all, if you are not prepared to do your own research, you should be asking yourself if this is the right subject choice for you!

Although, there are no entry requirements, you do need a reasonable level of literacy to be able to both understand the concepts introduced, and get the most out of the materials.

    Who is this for?
     

    Anybody with a reasonable standard of general education will be able to cope with the academic demands. If you can read and write well enough to complete a job application, and have a good grasp of basic maths (add, subtract and divide) you should have no problems. The learning materials are written in simple everyday language and the answers to your assignments will be completed in the same style. In addition to the comprehensive learning materials provided, you will receive a Study Guide to assist you, and, of course, you will have the support of your tutor.

    What will I cover?
     

    Your studies will cover the areas of study listed above through detailed exploration of the subject matter. You will also receive tasks and prompts for further personal exploration and research to carry out so that you can gauge how much you have learned. There are plenty of examples to help you but personal research is a prerequisite, so be prepared to use your initiative to fully answer the assignments.

    Is it accredited?
     

    This is a non-regulated qualification endorsed by Focus Awards under the FQP scheme.

    Although the learning materials are comprehensive and informative, we do expect you to carry out your own investigations. After all, if you are not prepared to do your own research, you should be asking yourself if this is the right subject choice for you!

    Your work is not graded; assignments are simply identified as Pass, Fail or Referred. For assignments not passed at first attempt, your tutor will advise on the improvements to be made to obtain a Pass on a reworking. A certificate of achievement will be issued by Focus Awards on successful completion of all the assignments.

    Is this a nationally recognised qualification?
     

    No, this is a non-regulated qualification which has been endorsed by Focus Awards under their FQP scheme

    What will my studies prepare me for?
     

    The learning materials and accompanying tasks will help you to develop the necessary knowledge and confidence to successfully complete the tutor marked assignments. The tasks are designed to encourage you to apply your knowledge, and help you to develop relevant research and academic writing skills.

    How do I send in my work?
     

    You email your assignments one at a time for marking. This enables your tutor to properly assess the standard and style of your work for each section, and give you feedback which will be used on your next assignment; a process of continuous improvement. On obtaining feedback and comment you will either move on to the next assignment or review and rework the one you submitted.

    If I fail an assignment can I retake it?
     

    Yes, your tutor will ask you to resubmit your assignment and give you some pointers as to where you could improve.

    What do I receive once I enrol?
     

    We will send you ALL the learning materials. This consists of a folder and Study Guide, plus a package of bonus materials and items to enhance your learning experience.

    Is there a time limit or any deadlines?
     

    Your studies should be completed within 12 months, but can be extended for a small fee if your tutor supports your request. As a rough guide, depending on your circumstances and commitment, you can complete your studies in about 100 study hours. There are no other deadlines to meet.

    Is there a word count for my assignments?
     

    Although a word count is not given for the tutor marked assignments, it is important that you demonstrate to your tutor that you have fully understood the questions; a comprehensive Study Guide is included with your materials. Many students start slowly at first, but your tutor will give guidance to help and encourage you to improve.

    Can I cancel if I do not think this is right for me?

    Do I need a computer to complete my studies?

    Are the learning materials paper-based or online?
     

    If you select the hardcopy option above, your materials are paper-based and come in a sturdy folder. Alternatively, start your studies immediately and save £££’s by studying exclusively online, with full access to your learning materials and tutor support, studying has never been easier!

    What is employment law?

    Employment law covers all employers’ rights in terms of legislation and procedure. When working in human resources in a business this covers a very similar role as human resources are there to ensure employers have all their needs met and know what rights they are entitled to.

    Why did you decide to work in human resources?

    After leaving school I went straight into employment, I was first working in customer service where I was naturally a ‘people person’. I tended to take care of my colleagues and sort out their problems if they had issues with customer’s etc. My manager noticed these skills I had and offered me a promotion to work in HR to be able to ‘look after’ employees officially.

    What is involved in human resources on a day to day basis?

    Working in Human resources requires interviewing and hiring new employees. Records are made of new and existing employees where those that work in HR have to keep up to date.

    Human resources are responsible for staff training and development and arranging training courses to ensure employees are up to date in knowledge and skills within their practice. Human resources are responsible for the full welfare of employees such as health and safety. They may also have to deal with complaints and at times deal with disciplinary.

    What are the entry requirements for working in Human resources?

    There is no specific entry requirement s to work in human resources. However, employers will look for a standard education such as five GCSE’s A*-C level, usually including maths and English and usually office experience. You would then need to be willing to work towards (or already have) a qualification in human resource management.

    What can I expect to earn working in Human resources?

    Human resources administrators can earn - £15,000 - £19,000 a year.

    Starting salaries for human resources officers can earn £18,000 -£25,000 a year.

    Human resource managers can earn £25,000 - £50, 000 a year
