About WAVE

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 1985, 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 acknowledges and pays respect to the Traditional Custodians of the lands on which we live and work and their elders past and present. We recognise First Nations Australians as the Custodians of these unceded lands and waters and acknowledge that First Nations Australians hold more than 60,000 years of wisdom, connection and caring for country. We are grateful for their contributions to educational, cultural and spiritual practices.
