Centre for Vocational and Educational Policy (CVEP) – a research centre contributing to the growth of knowledge about education and training in Australia through evidence-driven scholarly analysis, consultancy and policy advice. Our work focusses on pathways within upper secondary education and from upper secondary education into higher education, vocational education and training (VET), work-based training and the labour market, both in an international and a comparative context.

We integrate research, consultancy and teaching in this specialised policy area. We seek to contribute to improve: the transitions and learning outcomes of disengaged youth at the national and jurisdictional levels and the quality of VET and upper secondary education systems, processes, practices and outcomes.
