This course, which is accredited by the British Psychological Society, delivers a mix of theory and practice in Occupational and Organisational Psychology, using real-life examples to bring the subject to life. Core modules include employee selection and assessment, workplace wellbeing, learning and development in organisations and psychological research methods.
The course uniquely includes a psychometric testing qualification – the Certificates in Occupational Testing – in addition to the core curriculum. This enables you to gain certificates in occupational testing for ability and personality and the additional qualifications will be a real boost to your career and employability, offering you a notable advantage after graduation.
You’ll also get to specialise in a particular area of interest through your thesis, which 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’ll be equipped with advanced psychological knowledge that will allow you to conceptualise and theorise about critical issues in occupational and organisational psychology. You’ll also have extensive experience of psychometric testing.
And thanks to the real-world context that will be integral to your studies, you’ll be able to apply that knowledge immediately and with real impact, in your workplace.
The course is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) as Stage 1 training, which when accompanied by the BPS Graduate Basis for Chartership (GBC) will provide a basis for professional development as a practitioner in the form of Stage 2 training, as well as further study, employment and enterprise.
