Please note, it is traditional for the delegates on this programme to be matched with a mentor for a period of around 6 months following the programme and we ask each participating institution to nominate a member of the HR senior team to undertake the mentoring role.  Your nominated mentor will then mentor a fellow delegate on the programme i.e. you won't be matched with someone from your own institution.

This programme is aimed at HR Advisors/Officers who are on an upward career trajectory to a business partnering role, as well as those who are new to the HR Business Partner role and feel they would benefit from further development to strengthen their organisational impact.

The programme comprises 4 modules taking place in September.  Participants successfully completing the programme will receive a CIPD HRBP Masterclass Certificate.

Module One:   Monday 31 January

Module Two:   Friday 4 February

Module Three:  Tuesday 1 March

Module Four:    Friday 11 March

Commitment to ongoing development will be encouraged by participants establishing a mentoring relationship with a UHR Mentor at Senior Business Partner level.

This four-day behavioural-focused programme will help you develop your strategic thinking to better connect and engage with your client base, develop purposeful data analytics as an evidence framework for organisational development interventions, as well as honing your skills as a trusted and influential advisor, able to confidently coach and mentor your prime stakeholders.
