Course Summary: Apprenticeships are work-based training programmes designed around the need of both the Apprentice and their employer.
HR Professionals in this role are typically either working in a medium to large organisation as part of the HR function delivering front line support to managers and employees, or are a HR Manager in a small organisation. Their work is likely to include handling day to day queries and providing HR advice; working on a range of HR processes, ranging from transactional to relatively complex, from recruitment through to retirement; using HR systems to keep records; providing relevant HR information to the business; working with the business on HR changes.
They will typically be taking ownership for providing advice to managers on a wide range of HR issues using company policy and current law, giving guidance that is compliant and where errors could expose the organisation to employment tribunals or legal risk.
In a larger organisation they may also have responsibility for managing a small team – this aspect is outside the scope of this Apprenticeship and will need to be covered separately by the employer.
