1. Human Resources: Learn The Fundamentals Of Human Resources

Aimed at beginners and those who wish to refresh and update their knowledge, this course provides a broad introduction to the many facets of human resources, and is designed to give you an understanding of a range of issues facing a typical HR manager.

“The basic mission of human resources will always be to acquire, develop, and retain talent; align the workforce with the business; and be an excellent contributor to the business.” – Edward L. Gubman, Journal of Business Strategy.

This course describes the impact having an effective HR department has on the health of any organisation, regardless of its size, and the core skills, key functions, and responsibilities of Human Resource Management (HRM). This includes an in-depth study of a mainstream area of the HR remit – Organisational Development (OD), which is central to improving organisational performance through increasing process efficiency and improving interpersonal relations.

It is part of the role of HRM to stress the importance of, and implement a strategy for, staff development within an organisation, so that they may remain agile within their marketplace. The course explains this in detail, along with how to design effective training. You will also learn the various methodologies to set, track, and reach performance management goals for employees, which will in turn help a business to reach its objectives.

Successful companies are aware of the importance of the motivation and wellbeing of their employees. You will learn how a human resources department can go about advocating a company culture of nurturing employees and ensuring buy-in and job-satisfaction, and the massive impact this can have on organisational productivity. Wellbeing is not just about motivation however, as the Human Resources Course explains the importance of adhering to up-to-date practices and procedures regarding discrimination and equality in the work-place and during the recruitment process.

Student are guided through the recruitment process and how to succinctly advertise positions and ensure the best candidate is selected. Also covered are: the process of inducting a new recruit to the company and the importance of doing this, and what is involved in a contract of employment, the different contract types, and options for varying a contract.

Just as important as hiring the right people, is understanding why some employees leave and while others stay. The course discusses the reasons an employee may choose to cease employment and strategies that can be implemented to increase retention. Also covered are the reasons an organisation may wish to dismiss an employee and the processes to follow to ensure this is done fairly.

Who will benefit from the course?

The Human Resources Course is aimed at beginners and those who have some knowledge or experience of human resource management but require a refresher course to consolidate and update their knowledge.

Successful completion of the course provides a good grounding prior to starting the professional pathway.

The course uses Excel 2013 for Windows, though Excel 2016 was released at the end of 2015.

3. Project Management: Learn How To Be An Effective Project Manager

The role of a project manager is multifarious. You’ll lead teams on diverse projects – steering them from start to finish, elevate your career prospects and provide tangible value, adapt to changes and be constantly learning, never be bored in your job and be well-paid to do it. We’re going to help you get there with this incredibly detailed course, which examines the knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques you need to know to be an effective project manager.

The course introduces the subject by jumping straight into explaining the role of a project manager, the range of methodologies they use, and an outline of the processes and knowledge necessary to be successful. You’ll learn about approaches to project management, including the traditional approach, the PRINCE2 Process Model, and Critical Chain Project Management (CCPM), amongst others. You’ll be shown how to breakdown the lifecycle of a project into phases to give your efforts structure and simplify them into a series of logical and manageable steps.

You will learn about the concepts and tools, both manual and software-based, that effective project managers use to accomplish tasks and execute responsibilities, including how to use Program Evaluation Review Technique (PERT) and Gantt Charts. You’ll explore the various ways in which a project’s team is put together and organised depending on the requirements of the company and the project, the various typical roles within a team, and how to create a hierarchy of team members.

Having been shown briefly how to create a project life cycle in the introduction to the course, you are later shown this process in much greater depth. You’ll discover how every project is separated into five smaller processes or phases that are tailored to the needs of the project and which make up a project lifecycle. Each of these five processes is covered in incredible depth to give a comprehensive understanding of their purpose within the lifecycle. The phases discussed are Initiation and Planning, Processes: Execution, Monitoring and Controlling, Change Management, and Closure.

To ensure that the aim of a project is achieved as efficiently as is practicably possible requires proper coordination of processes and activities, this is known as Project Integration Management and is examined and described fully in this course. You’ll learn about what the role entails and the steps to take and processes to follow to be effective in the position and how to develop and incorporate and action and monitor a project management plan using proven methodologies.

Time, cost, and quality are a trio of variables that must be planned in from the beginning and tracked all the way through to the closure of a project, helping you to adjust resources as necessary throughout. The Project Management Course guides you through the tools and techniques used to ensure you stay on top of these important areas.

Critical to the success of any project and the most important resource at your disposal, is the people working on it – the project team. Projects get done by people, not by tools, techniques or technology and you’ll learn the considerations you need to make to ensure you get the best people onboard. One of the biggest downfalls of projects is not considering and preparing for any risks that will inevitably arise. You’ll learn to understand what is meant by risk and how to plan for and avoid the worst.

Who would benefit from the course?

Aimed at those looking to gain a career in project management, this course outlines the knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques necessary to be effective in the role. Studying this course will provide you with a foundation of knowledge and the confidence to go onto study for project management-specific qualifications, such as PRINCE2 Foundation and APM RPP.

If you are currently working in a specialised and/or managerial role, you can use the skills and knowledge gained from this course to drastically improve your ability to manage projects within your role.

4. Event Management: Start Your Career In Event Management

For those brave enough this is a highly rewarding career with a great feeling of accomplishment with every successful event completed. The Event Management Course is a great start to that career with all the information and answers you need.

This is a very involved course, covering a lot of information on how to be successful in this career path. This is a brief run down of the course:

Introduction to Event Management

The course starts with an introduction and fact-finding mission that will give you all the answers to your questions about Event Management, including what it involves, what the market is like, and why the role exists.

Managing Events

Whether a concert for hundreds or a tea party for ten, the success of an event is down to planning and implementation. This is the multi-varied role of an Event Manager; being the person responsible for everything surrounding an event: from creating a theme, marketing, organising car parking, setting dates, acquiring necessary permits, running the event itself, organising clean up after the event, and so much more… and of course having fallback plans for every eventuality.

Going in deeper into the role itself, the course moves on to tell you the kind of skills you will need and the sorts of challenges you will face and how to overcome them. It also informs students of additional courses that would be beneficial to study, to improve upon the various skills needed to be an Events Manager, as well as talking through how important budgeting is to the role.

The Events

The events that can require an Events Manager are far-ranging and although many ideas can be carried across various events, each involve different processes and approaches. This section of the course talks through different event types, how each are important, and what would be required in each case. Events discussed include everything from corporate and charity events, to parties, Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, and even funerals, along with many more.

Technology

As with most businesses, technology now plays a big part in Event Management. This part of the course talks through the importance of staying abreast of updates in technology, as well as how software, apps, online services, and having a website can improve your business and make your life easier.

Marketing Your Company

Good marketing is important to the survival of any company, so the Event Management Course dedicates a chapter to this very topic, giving you the tools you need and the know-how to effectively market your business through a variety of channels.

The Business

This part of the course teaches you how to run the business. This includes how to go about hiring and developing an effective team and how to use different management styles to motivate and develop your team towards well-set targets, it also outlines how to start the business and the assets and procedures that will need to be in place before looking for work.

Your Network

As many events will require the same sort of external services, it is important to create a network of reliable companies or individuals whose involvement with your company will be mutually beneficial. The Event Management Course talks you through who you will need on your team and how you can work together towards the success of both parties.

Your Clients

Without them there is no business. How you build and work on your relationships with clients is one of the most important areas of the business. The course goes into detail about how to be effectual in your communication with clients and how to nurture these relationships.

Who would benefit from the course?

The Event Management Course takes your natural skills in areas such as organisation and project management and your personal attributes, such as being upbeat and active, and turns them into an enjoyable and rewarding career, all you need is passion.

Whether you have no experience in organizing events or have been in involved in planning events small or large throughout your lifetime, this course will guide you through what you need to be successful in the industry, whether you wish to start a new career or create your own business.

The course will also be of benefit to you if you have an upcoming event that you need to organise or if you regularly organise events but would like to make the process easier and smoother.

5. Team Leadership and Motivation: Learn The Information And Tools Needed To Forge Your Own Path

The Team Leadership and Motivation Course provides the information and tools needed to forge your own path and create your own ideas of what makes a great leader, whilst being backed up by a foundation of knowledge from those who have gone before you.

The Team Leadership and Motivation Course deals with the ‘what’. To give a better understanding of what leadership actually is, as well as how it differs to management, this module introduces the concept of leadership and being a leader; discussing definition and purpose.

The study of leadership is a historic one but this said, it is not one that never gets stagnant, as changes in society and the challenges faced by leaders, demand constant evolution of theories and practices. You will learn the history of leadership theories as well as the different types of leadership.

The course hones in on the more specific and simplified categories or frameworks of leadership, known as ‘leadership styles’. These ways of behaving, often guided by a leader’s own aims and personality are discussed at length; giving insight into how no style is ‘better’ than another but could be more fitting to a particular situation and how it can be necessary to switch leadership styles as circumstances demand.

We look at motivation and how to motivate is one of the most important things to understand, to be an effective leader. You will learn the definition of motivation, the conditions that support or impede it, its relationship to leadership, and how to use it in the workplace.

Being a leader is not for everyone and is certainly not for the faint of heart. They are responsible for developing vision, leading and motivating diverse groups of people, facing daily personal issues and managing the problems and expectations of others too, taking on company responsibilities to enhance productivity and achieve growth, and keeping up with technological and cultural changes, and this is before attending to the ever-growing to-do list.

Who would benefit from the course?

Whether you would like a leadership role or are currently in one but would like to perform better, the Team Leadership and Motivation Course provides all the information and tools of those who have succeeded before you, allowing you to use this foundation of knowledge to fulfil the role in your own way, with confidence.

Projects get done by people, not by tools, techniques or technology and you’ll learn the considerations you need to make to ensure you get the best people onboard. One of the biggest downfalls of projects is not considering and preparing for any risks that will inevitably arise. You’ll learn to understand what is meant by risk and how to plan for and avoid the worst.

Who would benefit from the course?

Aimed at those looking to gain a career in project management, this course outlines the knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques necessary to be effective in the role. Studying this course will provide you with a foundation of knowledge and the confidence to go onto study for project management-specific qualifications, such as PRINCE2 Foundation and APM RPP.

If you are currently working in a specialised and/or managerial role, you can use the skills and knowledge gained from this course to drastically improve your ability to manage projects within your role.

4. Event Management: Start Your Career In Event Management

For those brave enough this is a highly rewarding career with a great feeling of accomplishment with every successful event completed. The Event Management Course is a great start to that career with all the information and answers you need.

This is a very involved course, covering a lot of information on how to be successful in this career path. This is a brief run down of the course:

Introduction to Event Management

The course starts with an introduction and fact-finding mission that will give you all the answers to your questions about Event Management, including what it involves, what the market is like, and why the role exists.

Managing Events

Whether a concert for hundreds or a tea party for ten, the success of an event is down to planning and implementation. This is the multi-varied role of an Event Manager; being the person responsible for everything surrounding an event: from creating a theme, marketing, organising car parking, setting dates, acquiring necessary permits, running the event itself, organising clean up after the event, and so much more… and of course having fallback plans for every eventuality.

Going in deeper into the role itself, the course moves on to tell you the kind of skills you will need and the sorts of challenges you will face and how to overcome them. It also informs students of additional courses that would be beneficial to study, to improve upon the various skills needed to be an Events Manager, as well as talking through how important budgeting is to the role.

The Events

The events that can require an Events Manager are far-ranging and although many ideas can be carried across various events, each involve different processes and approaches. This section of the course talks through different event types, how each are important, and what would be required in each case. Events discussed include everything from corporate and charity events, to parties, Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, and even funerals, along with many more.

Technology

As with most businesses, technology now plays a big part in Event Management. This part of the course talks through the importance of staying abreast of updates in technology, as well as how software, apps, online services, and having a website can improve your business and make your life easier.

Marketing Your Company

Good marketing is important to the survival of any company, so the Event Management Course dedicates a chapter to this very topic, giving you the tools you need and the know-how to effectively market your business through a variety of channels.

The Business

This part of the course teaches you how to run the business. This includes how to go about hiring and developing an effective team and how to use different management styles to motivate and develop your team towards well-set targets, it also outlines how to start the business and the assets and procedures that will need to be in place before looking for work.

Your Network

As many events will require the same sort of external services, it is important to create a network of reliable companies or individuals whose involvement with your company will be mutually beneficial. The Event Management Course talks you through who you will need on your team and how you can work together towards the success of both parties.

Your Clients

Without them there is no business. How you build and work on your relationships with clients is one of the most important areas of the business. The course goes into detail about how to be effectual in your communication with clients and how to nurture these relationships.

Who would benefit from the course?

The Event Management Course takes your natural skills in areas such as organisation and project management and your personal attributes, such as being upbeat and active, and turns them into an enjoyable and rewarding career, all you need is passion.

Whether you have no experience in organizing events or have been in involved in planning events small or large throughout your lifetime, this course will guide you through what you need to be successful in the industry, whether you wish to start a new career or create your own business.

The course will also be of benefit to you if you have an upcoming event that you need to organise or if you regularly organise events but would like to make the process easier and smoother.

5. Team Leadership and Motivation: Learn The Information And Tools Needed To Forge Your Own Path

The Team Leadership and Motivation Course provides the information and tools needed to forge your own path and create your own ideas of what makes a great leader, whilst being backed up by a foundation of knowledge from those who have gone before you.

The Team Leadership and Motivation Course deals with the ‘what’. To give a better understanding of what leadership actually is, as well as how it differs to management, this module introduces the concept of leadership and being a leader; discussing definition and purpose.

The study of leadership is a historic one but this said, it is not one that never gets stagnant, as changes in society and the challenges faced by leaders, demand constant evolution of theories and practices. You will learn the history of leadership theories as well as the different types of leadership.

The course hones in on the more specific and simplified categories or frameworks of leadership, known as ‘leadership styles’. These ways of behaving, often guided by a leader’s own aims and personality are discussed at length; giving insight into how no style is ‘better’ than another but could be more fitting to a particular situation and how it can be necessary to switch leadership styles as circumstances demand.

We look at motivation and how to motivate is one of the most important things to understand, to be an effective leader. You will learn the definition of motivation, the conditions that support or impede it, its relationship to leadership, and how to use it in the workplace.

Being a leader is not for everyone and is certainly not for the faint of heart. They are responsible for developing vision, leading and motivating diverse groups of people, facing daily personal issues and managing the problems and expectations of others too, taking on company responsibilities to enhance productivity and achieve growth, and keeping up with technological and cultural changes, and this is before attending to the ever-growing to-do list.

Who would benefit from the course?

Whether you would like a leadership role or are currently in one but would like to perform better, the Team Leadership and Motivation Course provides all the information and tools of those who have succeeded before you, allowing you to use this foundation of knowledge to fulfil the role in your own way, with confidence.
