About us

The Training team is an integral part of HESA's outreach activities in support of the record collection process. The team are dedicated to ensuring the sector understands the entire record collection process; from a detailed understanding of a record, the submission process, quality checks to onwards use of data. The events offered in the annual training programme allow HESA to share and disseminate best practice advice and guidance to reporting institutions.

HESA has delivered training to the sector for over a decade. During this time we have trained over 9,000 delegates and attended over 100 bespoke training visits. We are assured by the feedback received from these events that our training enhances and improves the data quality and reporting.

A wide range of seminars are offered throughout the year on all aspects of the data collection process. These are designed and delivered based on the sector's current needs and demands. The training can also be tailored to your requirements, with more time spent on the areas most important to you, including an individualised review of your institution's own data, through a bespoke training visit.

During a seminar or bespoke visit you will receive in-depth, hands-on training under the guidance of an experienced trainer. For your convenience the venues chosen for our seminars are comfortable, offer modern facilities and are easily accessible by public transport.  

All information relating to the training offered by HESA can be found in either the above tabs or from the Training and Support section of the website. If you have any questions about training offered by HESA please contact [email protected] - and someone will be pleased to assist you.
