Welcome to WAVE 2019. We look forward to working with you this election year in lobbying for issues affecting women and girls in adult and vocational education.  If you would like to be part of the campaign or contribute to our submission to the current Federal Government's review of VET, let us know.

  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)

MCCSA Harmony Week 2019
Music Video Launch

In our quest for an equitable, cohesive and thriving South Australia, the MCCSA is calling on everyone who calls Australia home - from the traditional owners of this land to those who have come from many countries around the world to join hands and celebrate Harmony Day on the 21st of March 2019.

In the wake of the recent atrocities in our neighboring country New Zealand, MCCSA CEO Helena Kyriazopoulos says that now is the time for all people to come together and reflect on the strength of our diversity.

“I am delighted with all the achievements of our society and our set of core Australian values - defined by our inclusiveness, respect and sense of belonging bestowed to all Australians, regardless of cultural or linguistic background” said Helena.

For this year’s Harmony Week celebrations ,MCCSA is proud to announce the launch of ‘We are All Humans’ a music video which was written, recorded and produced by a group of young people from diverse backgrounds in collaboration with the MCCSA Youth Development Team.

The message behind the song is that people come from different parts of the world to live in and contribute to Australia. Our difference is our biggest strength. We should celebrate our diversity and show our acceptance for one another.

MCCSA would also like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a Happy Harmony Week in 2019. We would really love to see this video and its message spread far and wide so are asking you to join us in sharing this video within all your networks.
