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 - Women & Girls - Education & Training in Australia

Meet the amazing Lynne Stone = previous owner of a computer software company and a student at Box Hill TAFE.

Her story illustrates the power of education in VET (vocational EDUCATION & training) & the richness in the concept of 'vocation'

'It was just a light globe moment. I don't know how or why and I've done nothing else ever since. I just make flowers.'
Lynne Stone hit the road in her van with no real plan other than to explore Australia. Collecting Australian plants and flowers from where they grew naturally - she started a life of creativity like no other. 🎨
To watch the full story of Lynne’s journey into botanical artistry, tune in to tonight's show on the ABC! 📺
