HEaTED (Higher Education and Technician's Educational Development)

HEaTED is a national training and career development framework for technicians working in institutions across the UK. Its vision is to deliver tools and opportunities that not only meet the training and career development needs of technical staff, but also fit into the requirements of an ever changing HE sector.

HEaTED offers a combination of development opportunities, information, networking and mutual support to people responsible for delivering training to technical and specialist staff. 

Participation in HEaTED training courses must be agreed by your department. Training for Royal Holloway staff is charged at the non-member rate and you may be able to apply to Organisational Development and Diversity for part-funding.
