In order for a business to reach its full potential, it must have the support and commitment of its staff. Therefore, it is essential to consider the roles of the employer and employee, in order to evaluate the impact on an organisation.
A successful and ethical business places the well being of its staff at the core of its business model, with that in mind you will study the following modules as part of your master's;
employee selection and assessment
workplace well being
learning and development in organisations
and psychological research methods.
A unique and exciting aspect of this course is that you will gain a psychometric testing qualification, the Certificate in Occupational Testing, in addition to the core curriculum. This opens up additional opportunities for you to gain certificates in occupational testing for ability and personality.
These additional qualifications will be a real boost to your career and employment opportunities. You will graduate with a notable advantage, to help you stand out in a competitive job market.
You will also get to specialise in a particular area of interest through your thesis. This can include carrying out live projects with a range of organisations including, small medium enterprises, local authorities and NHS Trusts.
This qualification has the potential to act as a real catalyst for your future – whether you’re looking to establish a new career or take the next step in your current role in consultancy, organisational development, training, recruitment or management.
That’s because you will be equipped with advanced psychological knowledge that will allow you to conceptualise and theorise about critical issues in occupational and organisational psychology. You will also have extensive experience of psychometric testing.
In addition to this, thanks to the real-world context that will be integral to your studies, you will be able to apply that knowledge immediately and with real impact, in your workplace.
