Themis have gained accreditation to offer HR Support Apprenticeships after passing the new standards for industry.
The accreditation makes Themis one of the first Apprenticeship providers in East Lancashire to offer Apprenticeships in Human Resources Support.
For Apprentices, a career in HR offers long-term options and a huge variety of roles. From recruiting or training staff on one day, to helping your company decide how staff should be rewarded the next. There are even roles which focus on employment law, protecting the rights of employees at work.
HR Apprentices can start off your career as an HR administrator but can progress all the way to the top of the business as an HR director, helping to drive the direction of the business. Some HR specialists go on to be business owners and set up their own HR and training companies.
HR Professionals in this role are typically either working in a medium to large organisation as part of the HR function delivering front line support to managers and employees, or are a HR Manager in a small organisation. Their work is likely to include handling day to day queries and providing HR advice; working on a range of HR processes, ranging from transactional to relatively complex, from recruitment through to retirement; using HR systems to keep records; providing relevant HR information to the business; working with the business on HR changes. They will typically be taking ownership for providing advice to managers on a wide range of HR issues using company policy and current law, giving guidance that is compliant and where errors could expose the organisation to employment tribunals or legal risk. In a larger organisation they may also have responsibility for managing a small team – this aspect is outside the scope of this apprenticeship and will need to be covered separately by the employer.
The Advanced (Level 3) Apprenticeship will run over 18 – 24 months and will incorporate day release at Themis' Burnley College campus. Successful completion of this apprenticeship will enable the individual to apply for associate membership of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) the professional body for the HR sector.
The HND (Level 5) HR Apprenticeship will be available from Themis from early 2018.
