NCVER's research program
NCVER works directly with the Skills Senior Officials Network (SSON) and undertakes annual consultation with key stakeholders to determine national research priorities. Research projects that inform these priorities are developed by NCVER, endorsed by the SSON and conducted as part of NCVER's broader research program.
See our current research for projects that are underway.
