Pathway 4: Academic pathway
PATHWAY 4: ACADEMIC PATHWAY
The Academic Pathway (AP) offers experienced academics and senior academics an opportunity to become a Certified Academic HR, in recognition of their professional contribution to the thinking and knowledge within the HR discipline, through academic research and/or teaching.
The Academic Pathway is based on the assessment and verification of a portfolio of evidence that demonstrates your contribution, as an experienced academic. The pathway allows you to showcase your research, teaching excellence and industry engagement.
Once your portfolio is reviewed by the certification team and feedback provided, an interview time will be set for you with subcommittee members of the National Certification Council (NCC) to further explore the portfolio outcomes. Once this process is successfully completed, your certification application can then be presented to the NCC for review.
To apply for the Academic Pathway, please email email@example.com.
"If academics are doing work that influences thinking around HR practice, then that is worth considering in terms of the understanding and knowledge that feeds back into the profession. It’s another way of ensuring high standards of expertise."
Dr John Molineux FCPHR, senior lecturer, Deakin University
