The education and research program of AOSC focuses on the occupational needs, interests and values of people at different life stages: childhood, adolescence, adulthood and older adulthood. Findings from AOSC research form the basis for recommendations to community agencies, business and government.
Creative occupations, physical occupations, life long learning and technology and communication are the four broad categories of occupation that are studied.
AOSC research involves collaboration with a range of researchers from various disciplines, both from within and outside the University of Wollongong.
Through established collegial networks, there is potential for cross cultural studies with universities in Sweden, New Zealand, Canada, United States, Ireland, Japan , Taiwan and United Kingdom.
