NCVER’s New Chief Executive Officer Welcomed By Skills Training Sector

Independent Tertiary Education Council Australia < 1 mins read


The appointment of Mr John King as Chief Executive Officer of the National Centre for Vocational Education and Research (NCVER) has been welcomed by the Independent Tertiary Education Council Australia (ITECA), the peak body representing independent Registered Training Organisations (RTOs), higher education, and international education providers.

"NCVER’s work is critical to determining whether the nation’s skills training system delivers the outcomes that students and employers seek.  From student activity and satisfaction to employer satisfaction, much of what NCVER does guides the discussion on the necessary policy reforms," said Troy Williams, ITECA Chief Executive.

With the Australian, state, and territory governments working on deliverables set out in the five-year National Skills Agreement, Mr King’s experience in policy and data will be important for the task ahead.

“The work of NCVER in providing highly granular data will help ensure that government skills funding is targeted correctly and effectively,” Mr Williams said.

NCVER is the main provider of research, statistics, and data on Australia’s skills training sector.  Its services help promote a better understanding of the skills training sector and assist policymakers, practitioners, industry, training providers, and students in making informed decisions.

"ITECA is looking forward to continuing our collaborative working relationship with NCVER and other key stakeholders that share a passion for high-quality data, such as Jobs and Skills Australia," Mr Williams concluded.

ITECA thanked the outgoing NCVER Chief Executive Officer, Mr Simon Walker, for his steadfast dedication to providing high-quality data.

"It’s been great to work with Simon, and we’ve appreciated the collaborative approach in ensuring that NCVER’s data is relevant to the policy research and advocacy that supports ITECA members," Mr. Williams said.
