I found that I understood some sections of the course better than others, and found more tasks more enjoyable to complete than others. As I am not employed in a HR environment I found some of the content challenging,as I would not experience or be expected to complete the tasks set in some of the hyperthetical scenerios in my day to day role. I would probably choose to specialise in well-being and staff engagement in a HR setting, as I felt more interesting and enthuastic about those particular subjects.
I enjoyed the course and i really benefitted from the delivery workshops. The units without workshops i found more difficult to learn from the self directed elements. It was very relaxed in terms of structure which I knew when signing up so need to be very organised and self -motivated to undertake. The trainers were brilliant, had great knowledge of the subject areas and were very responsive when asking for help.
What I liked: The CIPD assignments. These were well structured and forced a good appreciation of the subjects covered. My Tutor. I was very happy with my Tutor Amanda Harris as she was friendly, encouraging, and had very good expert knowledge. I was also impressed that she responded to enquiries and submissions very promptly. Choice of topics. I liked the ability to choose between a full range of optional modules, in fact this was the reason for choosing Watson Martin ahead of other providers.
