Aims for ESHA are:
AHDS is a full member of ESHA and participates in two General Assembly meetings per year which offer great insights into other education systems, the problems they are facing and the solutions they are pursuing. It also provides opportunities for us as an association to reflect on the workings of our organisation through engagement with our peers from around Europe. In addition, it allows AHDS to be at the heart of European and International developments in education.
The day to day work of ESHA is run from the HQ in the Netherlands. The office there coordinates ESHA engagement with European Union funded projects and the dissemination of project outcomes and member association good practice through their website and the ESHA magazine (published on-line 9/10 times per year).
Members can engage directly with peers through ESHA by attending the ESHA biennial conference. This is a large international conference for school leaders run every two years. After hosting the conference in Edinburgh in 2012, AHDS has worked with the Scottish Government to subsidise attendance for AHDS members at the 2014 conference in Dubrovnik, the 2016 conference in Maastricht and the 2018 conference in Tallinn, Estonia. The 2020 conference due to have taken place in Cyprus was postponed until 18-21st May 2022.
The next conference is taking place from 25 - 27 October 2023 in Dubrovnik, Croatia. Details of this can be found here: esha2023dubrovnik.com
