Realising our potential: widening participation through education and training
In recent years, NCVER has funded a significant amount of research focused on informing issues around the role of tertiary education and training in social inclusion, and particularly in workforce participation.
Findings from this research will be showcased at a one-day research forum about the role of education and training in overcoming complex disadvantage. The forum will also provide a greater understanding about the barriers to educational participation, completion and outcomes for disadvantaged learners.
Considered one of the best value events on the VET calendar, next year NCVER is delighted to co-host the 23rd National Vocational Education and Training Research Conference 'No Frills' with Holmesglen at their Moorabbin Campus, Melbourne, Victoria from 9-11 July 2014. Don't forget to mark the date in your diary.
NCVER will host a series of webinars throughout 2014. These one-hour presentations are free to attend and will showcase recent research on a variety of topics.

Intelligence Squared Australia (IQ2) – Live Debate
The National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER) in partnership with St James Ethics Centre presented an Intelligence Squared Australia (IQ2) live debate at the Adelaide Town Hall on 11 July 2012.
This event was timed to coincide with the 21st celebration of NCVER’s National Vocational Education and Training Research Conference ‘No Frills’.
By posing the contentious proposition Having a university degree is grossly overrated, we wanted to encourage people to think seriously about and debate the merits of tertiary education. This high calibre debate was an excellent fit for NCVER in its role as principal provider of vocational education and training research and statistics.
