Meet the team

Beth Magovern

Beth Magovern

Beth is a dynamic trainer with 7 years’ experience of developing and delivering technical and non-technical training programmes. Her interest in training was gradually shaped throughout her life by all the different ways in which she has experienced learning: as a learner, and as a trainer. Among the various teaching qualifications that she has obtained she recently graduated from the University of Gloucestershire and she is fully committed to remain informed and up to date on the latest training and development resources through her professional membership with the Chartered Institute of Personal Development (CIPD).

In her current role at HESA she typically manages, develops and delivers training initiatives to support the development of higher education professionals. In her spare time, she enjoys travelling and anything cosy, from open fires to spiced rum!

Michael Wood

Michael is the newest member of the training team and brings over five years experience of data analysis, most of which has been within HESA itself. Michael has been involved in the majority of the HESA collections in some form, whether writing quality rules, updating software and data specifications, or raising queries in Minerva (for which he is deeply sorry!)

Michael found his calling in presenting and training whilst assisting the training team at Staff record events. He is an avid learner, constantly seeking new ways of continuing his own learning and development by attending professional meetup groups, participating in webinars and completing e-learning courses.

Outside of the HESA towers Michael enjoys cycling (not always well), walking and playing racket sports.
