Study Human Resources (HR) and Coaching at SIT

SIT's Human Resource (HR) qualifications are aimed at those in the "people" side of business, either through the personnel function, employment relations or the wider area of human resource management, and teach the range of skills necessary for someone working in this demanding field.

Our Coaching programmes are suitable for professionals working in areas of social development (teachers, trainers, consultants, HR professionals) and/or social support services (social workers, nurses, therapists). They are also useful to those working in service industries with a strong client orientation (such as tourism and hospitality) who would like to develop their people skills and improve their interpersonal communication and client relationship skills.
