> Hi,

> All coursework should be word processed, in an easy to read font such as Calibri, Arial or Times New Roman. Use a font size no smaller than 11 point and no larger than 14 point. Allow a reasonable amount of space within and between paragraphs, preferably using 1.5 line spacing. Above all, allow a decent size page margin all round, so that we have enough space to write comments Avoid the use of bullet points in the text unless absolutely necessary. Assignment 1 (the case study) should be written in report format (see further details under assignment 1 below):

> Further information. In the second part of your answer you should concentrate mainly on one preferred approach out of the three perspectives. However, you should initially justify why you are focusing on your chosen approach in preference to the other possible perspectives and indicate why you think this approach is more applicable to the case than the other two. After identifying what you think are the main HR problems (and why), provide a brief critical review of the potential advantages and disadvantages of each approach in relation to the case, provide a justification for choosing one approach. Then apply the approach to the case study, critically assessing how it may contribute to providing a long-term resolution to the HR problems you identify.

> In identifying what you consider to be the main HR problems in the first part of the task, it is preferable to discuss relatively few problems in greater depth than to discuss lots of HR issues superficially.
