NCVER News #398

8 March 2017

We're moving

After 15 years at 33 King William Street, Adelaide, NCVER is moving to a new location on Tuesday 14 March 2017:

Level 5, 60 Light Square
Adelaide, SA, 5000

We've been working very hard to ensure the move doesn't affect our program of work, data systems or customer support services. Our customers will experience little or no change . . . it will be business as usual.
