Introduction

HUMAN RESOURCES E1- Knowledge of the responsibilities covered by the human resources function with in the business, showing a thorough understanding of the importance of these resources to the business: This is demonstrated throughout Introduction Human Resource planning is how businesses recruit, retain and manage people (employees/workers). Businesses need make efficient use of people because they are one of the key resources businesses have. In order for a business to achieve it's objectives they must plan their human resources in the manner of finding the right type of people with the specified qualifications and training to meet the specifications of the job, in other words "the right employee for the right job". (Heinemann AVCE business) H.R. planning also deals greatly with forecasting the workforce requirements of the business for future years. H.R. planning involves finding out how many employees a business will require in the future as well as the type of employee. In the context of Shipley College HR planning means understanding the local demographics and skills shortages. HR planning is important to Shipley College because in order to attract students, Shipley College must plan for what type of students will study here and what they will want to study. This links to R and S and involves what types of tutors are needed with different specialist skills. In the context of Shipley College recruitment involves advertising vacancies, interviewing and recruiting new staff. Retaining and managing staff involves continuous professional development and organizing work hours. Shipley College doesn't forecast its self but depends on the Learning Skills Council and the Association of Colleges. These two organisations in conjunction collect data and find out what skills each area is deficient in and set guidelines for Shipley College to increase skills in these areas. Shipley College then offers vocational qualifications and training that reflect the needs of the community. This in turn determines how many staff and the skills profile of those staff that the College requires, reflecting the needs of the community. ...read more.

Giving questionnaires to students helps monitor the developments along with other methods such as giving tutors appraisals, peer evaluation and observation. This section of training and development links with Performance management and will be discussed in the Performance management section. Performance Management at Shipley College (C3 + E7) The performance management system at Shipley College is linked with its training and development. One example of this may be Shipley College's objective to aid tutors in completing their key skills exams and portfolio work. In order to maximise the productivity and to increase the teaching ability of the tutors they must complete more qualifications. This is performance management linking with training and development. The tutors are aided in completing their key skills portfolio work and exams and this increases their transferable skills and increases the competitiveness of Shipley College. The qualifications that the tutors of Shipley College contribute to making Shipley College a more competitive College because students/parents and especially the government will invest in any school, College or sixth form based on the results the students receive and how well the students give feedback on that particular place. This makes it necessary to train tutors more and more to increase their performance, this will inevitably give tutors more skills to teach their students producing higher results and more student satisfaction with their courses leading to competitiveness in the teaching business. Not only will students see the results that a particular school or College attains but parents and the government will recognize this and parents will send their children and the government will recognize the benefit of granting more money to this learning centre has on the society which ultimately benefits the government and the whole of the country as more new comers contribute to the growing economy. Performance appraisal Performance appraisals "systematically" evaluate the performance and provide feedback using the basic equation: "Desired performance - Actual performance = Need for action" (Heinemann Advanced Business by Needham, Dave and Dransfield, Rob page 441) ...read more.

Conclusion

Training your own employees costs less for businesses in the long run because of various factors such as trained workers usually cost more and they tend to leave sooner where as training in house usually causes employees to stay with the company longer and motivates them and gives them higher morale. Overall the efficiency and quality of the work force increase whilst reducing costs. The qualifications that the tutor's gain from continuous training and development improve the competitiveness of Shipley College because students/parents and especially the government will invest in any learning institution based on the results the students receive and how well the students give feedback on that particular place. This makes it necessary to train tutors more and more to increase their performance, this will inevitably give tutors more skills to teach their students producing higher results and more student satisfaction with their courses leading to competitiveness in the teaching business. Not only will students see the results that a particular school or College attains but parents and the government will recognize this and parents will send their children and the government will recognize the benefit of granting more money to this learning centre has on the society which ultimately benefits the government and the whole of the country as more new comers contribute to the growing economy. In order for Shipley College to have a smooth running environment they must coincide with all these factors, and they certainly do; they have an excellent performance appraisal systems that continuously links with training and development throughout the year documenting all skills needed, objectives attempted, skills gained and objectives for the College met as well.
