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)

WAVE postpones the April forum -

More than just women in Hard Hats

WAVE has had to make the difficult decision to postpone our April forum given the inability of many speakers/participants to travel and health issues associated with COVID-19.

We thank our sponsors and those of you who had registered. We hope to reschedule later in the year, and will let you know details then.

Linda Simon, WAVE National Convenor


Co-convenors for WAVE in Perth, WA, Sue Thompson and Sarah Leftwich hosted a morning tea at the Northbridge Campus of North Metropolitan TAFE on Tuesday 29th October.
