Expressions of interest for research projects

Under new arrangements from 2017 national research priorities and projects are determined through a Skills Senior Officials Network (SSON) Research Working Group.

NCVER may periodically call for expressions of interest, or seek collaborative partners, to undertake research projects which will be considered by the Research Working Group, with NCVER as the contract manager.

These will be advertised on the NCVER Portal (under the Funding opportunities page) and notifications sent via NCVER News. To subscribe to NCVER News

NCVER will provide a guide to submitting expressions of interest when a call is announced.

Key research stakeholders in higher education institutions, vocational education institutions, consultants and industry will be eligible to submit, and partnerships or collaboration between researchers, government, education peak bodies, industry and end-users are encouraged. Contributions in the form of funding and/or in-kind to a project will be considered highly.

Building research capacity

NCVER is committed to building research capacity in the VET sector by:

  • attracting experienced researchers from outside the sector
  • encouraging early career researchers
  • supporting people in the sector to undertake research

In an effort to achieve these aims, the following opportunities are offered.

NCVER Fellowships

NCVER offers fellowships to provide researchers interested in education, labour markets and social inclusion with the opportunity to use NCVER data sets. Research topics will be negotiated between the host institution, the researcher and NCVER. Funding of between $10 000 and $20 000 will be offered.

There are currently no fellowship opportunities available.

For queries regarding the fellowships please contact Bridget Wibrow.
