  • Teachers delivering year 7-10 Agriculture through Technologies curriculum

The association is also keen to expand its member base to include primary teachers using an agriculture context in science, technologies or other learning areas.

  • Automatic National Association of Agricultural Educators (NAAE) membership, and invitation to attend their biennial conference
  • The opportunity to attend relevant professional development events identified by the AEAWA executive at a subsidised, or fully-funded rate (note: agriculture teachers or trainers only)

The association’s AGM is held in December each year at the annual WA College of Agriculture conference

Annual AEAWA membership includes automatic National Association of Agricultural Educators (NAAE) membership, and is payable by 31st March each year.
