Welcome to WAVE 2018. We look forward to working with you this year in lobbying for issues affecting women and girls in adult and vocational education, WAVE events including the UN Sustainable Development Goals, and further research and networking activities.


  WAVE is a national network of women involved in VET, adult education and the broad field of work-related education and training. WAVE provides seminars & workshops, research, policy advocacy and advice, as well as networking on an international, national and state basis. We are supported within each state by local representation that in turn contributes collaboratively to national events and governance.   WAVE was formed in 1987, the first and only national and autonomous non-government organisation for Australian women in the adult, community and vocational education and training sector. For the first 14 years we called ourselves the Network of Women in Further Education. (NOW in FE)
