“Wanting to gain an insight into a variety of contemporary case studies and theories within the world of HR, which I could then apply practically in my job role, I sought a course at LCBS.
“The PG Dip course is for two years, however there is an option to top it up by studying for an extra year and converting it to a Masters, and the support available has been amazing. The study takes me on site at the school once every eight weeks with independent study in addition to the contact hours. Both my colleagues and tutors are always there for support, no matter where I am in the country.
“LBCS is one of the best environments I have had the opportunity to study in. The historic building has kept its traditional roots but added a fresh and contemporary feel to it, making it a unique environment to study in.
“The teaching is excellent and equips you with ideas and theories, which we can then try and test in our day-to-day jobs. You have the chance to be taught by some of the country's leading tutors who have endless amounts of knowledge and experience to share.
“I enjoy learning the key theories and then having the chance to go and put them into practice. I always like to reflect on our learning at the following module too – it’s a great way to learn from one another and have healthy discussion amongst colleagues.
“The course is giving me a head start with my HR career, allowing me to have a solid foundation of knowledge and experience that I can draw upon throughout my life as I progress through my career. The opportunity to discuss ideas and theories with colleagues and tutors is inspiring and encourages for reflection.”
