HR & Payroll free qualifications up for grabs!


HRZone together with HRD & Payroll solutions bring you the chance to win a 14 week HR or Payroll qualification. The entry forms are available today from the Softworld event being held at Birmingham’s NEC and also at next week’s CIPD conference in Harrogate.

The role-play based e-learning solution is aimed at anyone embarking on a career in HR, or for those incorporating HR responsibilities within other roles, such as payroll and administration.

The programme is also suitable for those that work in the HR industry including sales and marketing professionals who are looking for a flexible e-learning solution to update their HR knowledge.

A broad overview of the HR agenda is presented, incorporating employment legislation and the practical management of people issues.

Three levels are offered:

  • Introduction to e-learning (1 week)

  • BTEC Intermediate Award in Human Resources Administration Level 2 (14 weeks)

  • BTEC Advanced Certificate in Human Resources Supervisory Management Level 3 (12 weeks – after completion of level 2 or entry assignments)

HRD & Payroll solutions has taken a soap-opera approach to its learning delivery. Characters including ‘Ed the CEO’, ‘Marjory the payroll manager’ and ‘Theresa from sales and marketing’ are among the central characters who perform role-play scenarios designed to guide learners through the variety of real-life people-management situations that might arise.

Problem-solving options are then presented by ‘HR guru’ and ‘Employment lawyer’ who offer possible solutions to the soap-star HR issues.

This cartoon-style training method sits alongside a range of additional learning support including a CIPD-authored workbook, an interactive tutor and learner forum, assignment tasks and tutor feedback.

Course content can be tailored to the needs of the organisation offering the opportunity for a bespoke learning solution.

Visit the HRD & Payroll Solutions stand (Q10) at the CIPD conference in Harrogate from 27-29 October to pick up your free prize draw entry form.

Good luck!
