ESHA, the European School Heads Association, is a professional organisation for European School Heads. Members of ESHA are national organisations for school heads and deputy school heads within (pre-)primary, secondary and vocational education. Nearly all European countries (both EU and non-EU) are represented within ESHA by one or more organisations.
ESHA maintains an international network for European school leaders through 38 member organizations in 26 European countries representing 120,000 school leaders.
If you are affiliated with one of our member organizations, you can also benefit from the membership. This is what ESHA can do for you:
Only associations of school heads can apply for membership in ESHA. Each application must be validated by the ESHA board. ESHA is an association which means that our members jointly decide on the strategy. All member associations have a vote at the General Assembly which is organized twice a year. If there is no school heads association in an EC country, individuals can contact the organisation to explore the possibilities.
On behalf of all our members we would be delighted to welcome your organisation as a member of the European School Heads Association. For more information about membership, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The General Assembly elects from among its members the board members who have made themselves available for this role. Appointments and terms of office are determined in the General Assembly. Board members and General Assembly members do not receive any remuneration or attendance fees. Employees receive their salary on the basis of the employment contract. In addition, there is no remuneration policy for employees.
