Human Resource (HR) workers are a company's staff charged with finding, screening, recruiting and training job applicants. Their duties also entail enforcing policy, and ensuring health and safety within the workplace among a variety of other tasks.


Hudson have partnered with Oxford Learning College to offer this Diploma course


Most employers seeking to hire Human Resource workers will insist the applicant has a qualification and high level of education - which makes this course ideal for those wanting to follow a career in HR. This course is aimed at individuals with an interest in developing their knowledge and understanding of Human Resources. This course will teach you the responsibilities of a Human Resource Manager. It will help you to understand the recruitment, selection and appraisal processes while gaining knowledge of different cultures and ethics. This qualification will provide students with a thorough foundation in the principle subjects underlying the practice of Human Resources Management.

  • Diploma in Human Resources (Level 3)
  • In addition to the Diploma, successful students will receive a Certificate of Achievement from ABC Awards and a Learner Unit Summary (which lists the details of all the units the learner has completed as part of the course).

  The course has been endorsed under the ABC Awards Quality Licence Scheme. The completion of this course alone does not lead to an Ofqual regulated qualification but may be used as evidence of knowledge and skills towards regulated qualifications in the future.  

ABC Awards is a leading national Awarding Organisation, regulated by Ofqual, and the Welsh Government. It has a long-established reputation for developing and awarding high quality vocational qualifications across a wide range of industries. As a registered charity, ABC Awards combines 180 years of expertise but also implements a responsive, flexible and innovative approach to the needs of our customers. Renowned for excellent customer service, and quality standards, ABC Awards also offers Ofqual regulated qualifications for all ages and abilities post-14; all are developed with the support of relevant stakeholders to ensure that they meet the needs and standards of employers across the UK.


The unit summary can be used as evidence towards Recognition of Prior Learning if you wish to progress your studies in this sector. To this end the learning outcomes of the course have been benchmarked at Level 3 against level descriptors published by Ofqual, to indicate the depth of study and level of demand/complexity involved in successful completion by the learner.
