Mission Statement: Promote and encourage outstanding management practice in the Higher Education sector by facilitating cross-disciplinary dialogue and the sharing of expert and professional knowledge


AMHEC prides itself on providing excellent networking and development opportunities through its annual Conference and Workshop.  Our conference is held around Easter with topics of current interest and speakers from sector organisations as well as experts and professionals from outside higher education.  Our workshop is held in September/October which is designed to be highly interactive with plenty of opportunity to discuss current issues and share practice with colleagues in the sector.

AMHEC 2019 Conference

Never before has the sustainability of Higher Education Providers been so relevant.

With the recommendations of the post 18 education and funding review imminent (and rumours abound), competition for students (and staff) being greater than ever, Brexit looming and pension costs rising, we need to take a hard look at ourselves, our strategies, approaches and models to ensure we can survive and thrive in the new environment. The AMHEC 2019 conference will explore the sector’s challenges and in particular consider how our institutions might use and leverage new digital capabilities to stay relevant and differentiate ourselves.

With speakers from within and external to the sector the 2019 conference is a must for your professional calendar.

AMHEC prides itself on encouraging open and honest dialogue between members, so as ever there will be plenty of opportunity to network with colleagues. With such a vast range of expertise in the room this is always much value to be derived by attendees. 

The annual conference is the highlight of the year for AMHEC and this year promises to be no different.

2016 Annual AMHEC Conference

Put the date in your diary!

The Annual AMHEC Conference will take place at the University of Chester on Thursday and Friday 7th and 8th April 2016.

Panerai is certainly a frequently polarizing brand that has, lately, seen a massive spike in recognition and it has switched right into a somewhat household title in men's luxury timepieces. While SIHH saw numerous new models from Panerai, none were as intriguing since the panerai luminor chrono clone watches.These records layout enables the Regatta 72 hours to remain while using familiar Fake Panerai Luminor Chrono dial aesthetic while still offering a powerful look at the pass time getting an optimum method of calculating 12 hrs. This layout is fantastically elegant and taking advantage of color is just enough to produce the PAM00526 apart from their other chronograph models.
