Training & Events

Training & Development Overview

Our core training programme is designed to equip members with the skills they need to successfully use HERA and FEDRA within their organisations.


In addition, we offer training and special events to help influence thinking and develop ways of introducing improvements to people management practice, whilst encouraging the sharing of ideas and thinking between ECC members.

As an ECC member you can book two free places on any of our nationally advertised events (subject to availability).

Core Training

2.5 hours

Introduction to Role Analysis
ECC and HERA/FEDRA Principles

We recognise that some people need to understand HERA or FEDRA as part of their job but won’t be responsible for scoring roles. So, we’ve created a shorter module focussing on the background and principles of the HERA and FEDRA schemes.

Session 1 - 2.5 hours

Sessions 2 & 3 - 3 hours each

Role Analyst Training

We’ve redesigned our role analysis training into shorter modules to make it easier for learners to absorb the information and participate in exercises in a virtual setting.

All potential Role Analysts must complete all 3 modules.

  • Session 1 - Stage One 'Aware'

  • Session 2 - Stage Two 'Module 2a'

  • Session 3 - Stage Two 'Module 2b'


These modules will equip learners with detailed information about the scoring methodology as well as giving opportunity to practice using the tools. Once completed, the learner will become an Approved Role Analyst.

Role Analyst Practice Workshop

We’ve also added a new optional session - Role Analyst Practice Workshop. Each session is hosted by a skilled ECC Trainer and examines one role outline or job description, with an opportunity to delve into the scoring methodology and ask further questions.

The practice session timing is flexible, so you can book onto this session any time after completing your role analyst training if you would like more support or practice.

Writing job descriptions

This session is aimed at HR professionals to provide you with the tools to advise managers on how to write effective job descriptions.

We’ll look at how to create job descriptions which will provide you with the information you need to carry out a HERA evaluation but will also be effective for the recruitment process, inducting staff, performance management and the appraisal process.

We’ll also provide guidance on how to write inclusive job descriptions so that you’re appealing to the widest possible audience.
