National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER)

The National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER) is a not-for-profit company owned by state, territory and federal ministers responsible for training.

It is a professional and independent body responsible for collecting, managing, analysing, evaluating and communicating research and statistics about vocational education and training (VET) nationally.

NCVER’s vision is to contribute to improvement in Australia’s education and training system by ensuring that policy and practice are based on sound evidence.

Its mission is to be Australia’s leading provider of high-quality, independent information on vocational education and training to governments, the education sector, industry, and the community.

A board of nine directors, who represent state, territory, and Commonwealth governments, industry, unions, and training authorities, manage NCVER.
