The other optional subject is work experiencealso worth 6 credits.

This work experience (or either of the other two subjects) will be carried out during the first term of Year 4 (or the first term of Year 8 for part-time students), through collaboration agreements entered into with a range of public and private bodies.

Distinctive Features

El Grado en Relaciones Laborales y Recursos Humanos de la Universidad de Alicante persigue la formación de profesionales polivalentes que intervengan en el ámbito de las relaciones laborales y la organización de los recursos humanos tanto en el sector público como el privado.

Se trata de un Grado con una larga tradición de enseñanza universitaria en la UA pues procede de la fusión de la anterior diplomatura en Graduado Social y posterior diplomatura en Relaciones Laborales y de la Licenciatura en Ciencias del Trabajo, titulaciones implantadas en las UA desde hace más de veinte años.

El principal rasgo diferenciador del Grado es que capacita y habilita para el ejercicio de la profesión colegiada de Graduado Social. Asimismo, el Grado capacita para el ejercicio de otras profesiones en el sector privado como la de gestor laboral, agente privado de colocación, técnico, director y subdirector de recursos humanos, técnico de prevención de riesgos laborales, auditor laboral. En el sector público permite el acceso, previa superación de los correspondientes concursos públicos, a profesiones como la de Inspector de Trabajo y Seguridad Social, Subinspector de Empleo y Seguridad Social, técnico de gestión del Servicio Público de Empleo Estatal, técnica de gestión de la Seguridad Social, docente de enseñanza secundaria en la rama de formación y orientación laboral.

Durante las sesiones docentes, el profesorado fomenta la participación del alumnado a través de un feedback o retroalimentación permanente de conocimientos, lo que aporta dinamismo a las clases teóricas y la resolución de las distintas actividades prácticas que estructuran las materias. Paralelamente, a través de la plataforma virtual UACloud, se llevan a cabo otro tipo de actividades complementarias a la asignatura como las tutorías virtuales, donde el alumnado puede exponer los problemas que le plantea la asignatura de forma individual, o los foros y debates, aplicaciones que permiten al profesorado plantear actividades no presenciales de aprendizaje autónomo. Además, a través de UACloud el alumnado puede tener acceso desde cualquier punto tanto a las diferentes guías docentes como a los materiales de estudio relacionados con las asignaturas que integran el Grado.

Un último rasgo identificador del Grado digno de mención es que una vez concluidos los estudios, los egresados pueden ampliar y completar sus capacidades formativas cursando el Máster Universitario en Prevención de Riesgos Laborales que imparte la Escuela Politécnica Superior de la UA y que les proporciona los conocimientos, habilidades y competencias para el desempeño de las funciones de Técnico de Prevención de Riesgos Laborales de Nivel Superior. Asimismo, dicho título capacita al alumnado para la obtención de una triple especialización en las áreas preventivas de Seguridad en el Trabajo, Higiene Industrial y Ergonomía y Psicosociología Aplicada.
