AoHE is a membership organisation, established in January 2018 following a chance conversation with the general manger of a world renowned Roll-Royce & Bentley Specialist. His biggest concern was the lack of a structure to help coordinate the sharing of skills, experience and information which could be lost to the huge skills gap created by apprenticeships having become unfashionable over the last 30 years.
We want to create a network for mutual help and support which would allow members, whatever their engineering background or age to meet, talk, share and contribute to build a legacy for future generations.
We support and champion Heritage Engineering in all the forms it can take. From pedal bikes to steam trains, from classic cars to independent museums and heritage organisations.
AoHE aims to help heritage organisations prosper. We believe our passion must not only survive but thrive, there are many young bright, enthusiast people wanting to make there careers in heritage engineering. We want to help them fulfil their purposes and demonstrate the relevance and importance of our heritage to everyone, so that it is preserved and inspires all our futures.
