The Association of Heritage Engineers (AoHE) was founded to promote, support and facilitate the 'cascade' of our industry's skills and experience to a new generation of young people. We have broadened that aim with the creation of the Sustainable Skills Network, the aim of which is to combine the creative forces across all of the heritage. This about amplifying our industries, stressing how important the skills they possess are and why they will play such an important part of a future sustainable repair based future economy, where skills will quite literally shape futures.
We have been able to create a thriving heritage network including individual members, Education, Museums, allied trades, specialist engineering companies and of most importantly apprentices.
We have also been able alliances with a number of like minded initiatives including The Heritage Crafts association, Brooklands Museum trust, The Bugatti trust, Heritage Skills Academy, AA810 Aerospace Careers programme
Our trade membership is both growing and expanding, becoming more diverse with an amazing skill range, the broader we can become, the more effective we can become. Not only for skills and training but for inter-business networking opportunities, strengthening heritage engineering allowing us to be at the forefront of what will need to become a sustainable, repair based future economy.
While we work with a lot of car based businesses and apprentices this isn't just about motor vehicles its about the connections within the world of Heritage Engineering. we am working with steam apprentices, beam engines, marine, aviation and specialist engineering business members that include a world leading foundry.
This is a time like never before. Mobile Heritage and the businesses and individuals it supports need to come together to have a common voice at the top table. That is what we are doing through our close links with the Heritage Skills Academy and membership of the Heritage Alliance.
Our advisory board is broad spectrum from aviation, marine and steam to TV, journalism and research. Now is the time to get together to make what we love relevant to a very different future which we need to be able to help steer.

We are not for profit, supporting and promoting education, training and skills sharing.
We support, promote and showcase our member companies, specialists and organisations using our amazingly diverse network of supporters.
Ultimately we hope to be able to support a number of organisations promoting and providing quality training for young people from all walks of life. One of our aims to to make Heritage Engineering seen as the national treasure it deserves to be with the protection in numbers that would ultimately provide.
We attend the major shows, have a very active and ever expanding social media presence .
We'd love you to become part of the AoHE and see how we can help each other to address the issues that will inevitably start to affect our industry.
Our latest initiative #Respectrepair #Repairculture is aimed at helping create a more sustainable future for engineering and potentially providing quality job opportunities for young people within that economy.
Lets start creating the agenda not reacting to it. Please get in touch about membership options. We are looking forward to working with you.
