HOW TO STUDY HR MANAGEMENT WITH IBTC

You can start at any time and set your own pace. No waiting for classes to begin. We send you all the study material, study aids, planning tools and assessments by courier so you can prepare for your final exams.

Included is a handy Study and Assessment Plan you should use to plan your studies. If you fail to plan, you plan to fail, remember. Our dedicated Course Monitor will walk the road with you and encourage you throughout your studies. His job is to make sure you stay on track. Our tutors are subject-experts and available throughout your studies. You have unlimited access to your tutor.

HOW MANY SUBJECTS IN A SEMESTER?

There are four subjects at each level of your HR Management course. Most of our students start off with just 2 subjects, because they work during the day and study in the evenings and over weekends.

We recommend that you have 2-3 study sessions per week per subjects. One study session can be 2-3 hrs. So you will see that two subjects will fill up your week quite substantially. There are off course students who can take on more subjects at a time, but most of our students achieve success by studying 2 subjects at a time and sitting  2 subjects per exam sitting.

SEMESTER MARK

For each subject in your Human Resource Management course you need to obtain a semester mark to enter for the exam. Submit all your assessments before 22 January and 1 July to be eligible to receive a semester mark. If your semester mark >40%, you can may enter for the exam.

YOUR HR EXAM

You should enter for the exam before 22 Feb (for the June exam) and 1 August (for the Nov exam).  Write your exam at our exam centres in Sandton and Cape Town. If you are unable to attend these centres, we can make arrangements for you to sit at a local TVET college in your area. You can sit up to 4 subjects in a sitting.

PROGRESSION TO THE NEXT LEVEL

Once you have successfully passed all four subjects at each level of your HR Management course, the Department of Higher Education and Training will issue you with a National Certificate and you may progress to the next level.

HR – no longer just ticking boxes

When you think back to 10 years ago, the role of a Human Resource Manager (HRM) has changed. During the industrial revolution, the role of the HR manager was to keep all the employees under control.
The role was only focused on hiring people, resolving disputes and negotiating salaries.

This approach worked perfectly in the industrial time but there has since been a shift in what is important, instead of product and service, people have now become the most valuable asset in a company. That is due to the belief that ‘successful business is built on strong relationships’ and strong relationships are built through a strong company culture.

Human Resource managers are now playing a more strategic role in the hiring, retention and overall success of the people in the company. The focus on HRM is now moved to the strategic utilisation of employees and the measurable impact of employee programs over business.

According to an article on Forbes magazine, corporate culture is becoming even more important as the modern workplace continues to evolve, it contributes strongly to the identity, retention and image of a company.

“One of the biggest motivating factors is the fact that research has indicated measurable increases in turnover for companies with poor or non-existent culture, and conversationally, culture is mentioned more frequently between entrepreneurs,” states the article.

So, because competition is high in all industries, companies are always looking for a way to stay ahead both in terms of hiring new people and in terms of appealing to customers. This is where Human Resource Management enters the conversation.

Nowadays successful companies need to be adaptive, resilient, customer-centred and quick to change direction. Within such an environment the effectiveness of HRM is crucial to business success.
