The Australian Youth Work Education: Curriculum Renewal and a Model for Sustainability for Niche Professions research project will establish an Australian Youth Work Educators’ Network (AYWEN).

The AYWEN network aims to link Youth Work educators in Vocational Education and Training (VET) and Higher Education (HE) sectors. The AYWEN network will facilitate discussions about trends in Youth Work education and provide opportunities to share resources, new materials, to collaborate on curriculum development, and to share innovation in pedagogy. The network will provide a forum for information exchange and mutual support in a numerically small professional field.
