Welcome to the site for Australian Youth Work Education: Curriculum Renewal and a Model for Sustainability for Niche Professions.
This project has multiple purposes. Firstly, to renew the youth work higher education curriculum for Australian Youth Work professional education. Secondly, to improve pathways for professional education and training in youth work. Thirdly, to examine organizational strategies that enable small niche professional courses, like youth work, to survive in the current higher education environment. The Australian Youth Work Educators’ Network will be established to consolidate cross-sectoral dialogue and collaboration.
This project, the Australian Youth Work Education: Curriculum Renewal and a Model for Sustainability for Niche Professions was funded by the Office for Learning and Teaching (OLT).
