Hi All. This is the first time I post here and I'm looking for a bit of advice. I'm going to give a brief summary about my life situation so that it's easy to understand.
I'm originally from Argentina but living in Scotland for the past 3 years. I am a qualified Teacher of English, however, I cannot teach here in Scotland and that's why, for the past two years and a half I've been working in Recruitment/HR. This was all new to me but I was able to get a position within a gaming company and started as Recruitment Specialist but doing many basic and general HR stuff. (training, induction, disciplinaries, admin, right to work, employee records, etc) and all that entails in recruitment. So I really liked it and I want to pursue a career in this. I want to go for a formal education, don't know if a Diploma or Bachelors yet. My only option is to study with Open University as it is from home. This suits me best because I have a baby and no chance to be able to go to brick uni as I don't have relatives or anyone here to help me with childcare and partner works shifts. So I thought OU would be best.
Now the thing is the Open University doesn't offer the degree "Human Resources" as such. I know there is a master and also there are many CIPD courses but I can't afford them and I know they are not funded by SAAS.
Here comes the question, if I go for business and management, would this allow me to work in an HR setting? or should I go for an Open Degree? Do you see some aspect of HR? I've been reading the info of the subject from the OU and I found it interesting, but I just want to make sure to be doing the right thing if go directly for Business or an Open Degree. Any experience of your studies in this course would be more than welcome and useful as it's all new to me.
