Award in HR Management in Practice - January/April 2021

Human Resources Management is becoming increasingly specialised and MEA has developed a course that addresses the needs of HR practitioners through a series of training sessions that focus on various aspects of HRM practice.

We have approached seasoned practitioners, academics, representatives from Government entities, NGOs and trade unions to deliver 26 sessions, spread over 13 weeks, on topics ranging from Occupational Health and Safety to the employment of Third Country Nationals to managing sick leave.

Successful participants will be given an Award certificate with the equivalent of 6 ECTS at MQF level 5.

Places are limited to a maximum of 20 participants, and applications will be accepted on a first come first serve basis. The first session of this course will be held on the 18 January 2021.

The course expense may be partially refunded through either the Training Pay Scheme, the Investing in Skills Scheme or the Get Qualified Scheme. Click here for further info. 


HR management is a specialisation, and many practitioners in Malta have the qualities to be competent HR managers but lack the knowledge and skills that enable them to function as HR professionals. In addition, many companies, mostly micro and small enterprises, may not have the scale to employ a full-time HR person, and will opt to train an existing member of staff to become knowledgeable about the importance and application of HR within his/her organisation. In many instances, people are thrown into an HR position, or asked to assume HR related responsibilities, without adequate preparation, in the belief that ‘anyone can do it’. There is increasing awareness that this is not the case, and this course will address a critical gap that many companies currently face and is the main reason why this course is being offered.


Managers, HR trainees, personnel taking HR duties, students interested in HR, etc. entry REQUIREMENTS At least a level 4 qualification in management or a related discipline, and/or a minimum of 2 years’ experience in general or HR management.


The course will consist of presentations, question and-answer sessions and discussions.


This course is equivalent to 6 ECTS and is accredited at MQF Level 5. All lectures are compulsory. Students will also be required to submit an assignment of 2,500 words to be eligible for certification. Since the course will consist on intensive sessions with heavy participant involvement and discussion, attendance is limited to a maximum of (20) twenty persons. Applications will be accommodated on a first come first served basis.
