This unit is designed to help students develop and customise a human resource management and development (HRMD) system for their school or system. This unit encourages students to understand HRMD in the context of Catholic school and system as well as recognise the influence of the wider environment. Students are also introduced to emergent theories of HRMD and to contemporary theology and Catholic social teaching. This unit will also help students to devise strategies and actions to ensure the effective implementation of their human resource management and development policies. Significant dimensions of human resource management and development, including human resource planning, professional learning, career development and performance management, will be explored.
