ANME Tokens

Ambassador Tokens

The ANME is all about encouraging members to get out of their offices and meet face-to-face with colleagues from other schools and colleges. We’re keen to meet as many members as possible, so we’ve launched a new *gimmick* to encourage members to come and introduce themselves to the Ambassadors!

This will help us learn more about you and identify ways you may be able to get more involved - though that's always optional - so don't let it put you off!

All the Ambassadors will be armed with their own tokens, and members are encouraged to collect them all as they meet us at ANME meetings or any events the ANME or Ambassadors are attending.

However – rather than giving them away like the freebies laid out on the tables at meetings – members must come and speak to us, introduce themselves so we can get to know you a bit, and we'll give you a token!

All ANME members and sponsors are invited to get involved and collect the tokens.

Portal Tokens

We want to recognise and celebrate your contributions to the Portal and meetings, so we have introduced Portal Tokens!

There are several categories for these, and we will be introducing new ones in the future - so if you have any suggestions, please do let us know.

Current categories include:

Post milestones Thanks Given milestones
Meetings Attended milestones Thanks Received milestones

These are virtual tokens that are displayed with all your posts on the Portal.

Event Tokens

We want to members attending other events the ANME is at officially!

Testimonials from Members & Partners

  • “Fantastic event, with interesting content and very well organised.”

    Alain Squiteri, Sales Director - InVentry

  • I thought the day was excellent. It was really good to have the companies there and invaluable for meeting and speaking with new contacts. I really hope this carries on as it was desperately needed in our field.

    Janet Cannell, Member

  • We’re really proud to be ANME’s platinum sponsor. It’s such a great platform for school network managers to get together and share ideas, plus it provides us the opportunity to speak directly to schools using our solutions and get their feedback and input into new features. Every event is always different, with fantastic speakers providing real insight and ideas on all things edtech.

    Al Kingsley, Group Managing Director, NetSupport Limited

  • ANME meetings provide valuable networking - being able to talk to other professionals doing the same role and understanding their approach and their context. This is a great way to challenge what you are doing in your own setting.

    Neil Limbrick, ANME Ambassador

  • A fantastic online resource of like-minded professionals that you can use to bounce ideas off, chat things through, get advice from. Invaluable.

    Ric Turner, Balshaws Church of England High School

  • The ANME is a priceless resource for anyone working in an IT support role in the education sector. The online forum is lively and informative and the regular meetings provide insight into new products and valuable networking opportunities with peers from other establishments. I've lost count of the number of valuable conversations and helpful tips that I've had since becoming a member. If you've not been to a meeting before then try to attend the next one in your area, you won't be disappointed.

    Dave Leonard, ANME Ambassador and ICT Manager at Matthew Moss High School

  • The ANME has been a great resource when you're a lone IT manager, now you have friends going through the same obstacles as you, with plenty of advice and guidance.

    Michael Frost, ANME Member & IT Network Manager at Parkwood Hall Co-operative Academy

  • Being part of the ANME is like being part of a large corporate IT department, there's always someone you can ask for advice

    Paul Gillon, ANME Member & Network Manager at West Hill School, Stalybridge

  • ANME is like having a team of IT experts at my fingertips. It helps me keep up to date with the latest trends in IT education.
    Rick and the ANME members have always helped when I've needed extra guidance to make great IT decisions

    Clifford Fernandes, ANME Member & IT Manager at Claremont High School

  • I attended my first ANME regional meeting recently which was great. It was Informative, relevant and useful! Unlike some meetings I attend where you get one or two useful nuggets of information, but other bits have been added to the agenda as fillers. Glad to be a member of this group of like-minded individuals.

    Adam Hall, ANME Member & IT Operations Manager at Four Oaks Learning Trust
