Who we are

AMiE is the leadership section of ATL representing leaders and managers in schools and colleges and is made up of head teachers, deputy and assistant head teachers, school bursars, business support managers, leaders and managers at all levels working in academies, further education, sixth form and adult education colleges; and managers in universities, training organisations and other areas of the education sector.

Given the increasing integration of schools and further education and AMiE's equally strong representation from both of these fields it means that AMiE is well placed to recognise opportunities and weaknesses within the current changes to the education landscape and express front line views on what would be best for both education leaders and managers, in delivering change on the ground, and for the learners they serve.

With extensive knowledge of the huge range of issues faced by leaders and managers every day, we understand that you have different needs and require a different level of expertise and guidance. AMiE has been developed with this in mind and provides its members with a dedicated top-quality service which includes:

  • direct access to regional officers dedicated to dealing with leadership and management issues
  • confidential helpline for you to use in your capacity as a professional manager or as an employee with a workplace problem
