Heidi Plus training

A range of online and in person training courses throughout the year to suit all levels of Heidi Plus knowledge and experience.

Our Heidi Plus training consultants will show you how to unlock powerful higher education insights through the creation of interactive data visualisations and dynamic dashboards to help inform your strategic planning.

All training is currently taking place online due to COVID-19 safety measures.

New users: Heidi Plus on-demand e-learning hub

To get started with Heidi Plus you can now access our Essentials training material on-demand via our e-learning hub. There are four recorded training sessions available for you to watch back on demand, designed specifically to introduce you to Heidi Plus and the essential concepts of creating and formatting data visualisations. 

These materials are suitable for anyone planning on using the tool with little to no knowledge of HESA data and/or an analytical background. 

Watch Heidi Plus on-demand via the Easygenerator e-learning hub.

“I now have the confidence to explore the Heidi Plus platform independently. Thank you!”"
