Research and Apprenticeship – The case of Australia’s NCVER

This study has assessed the impact of NCVER’s research against two themes: the role of apprenticeships in a modern economy; and the nature of vocations and the competencies required by industry. The evaluation spans 32 publications from 2005 to 2015. This is the third instance in which NCVER has undertaken an impact evaluation, on each occasion enhancing our approach.

Despite the general caveats associated with assessing impact and our case study approach, the results are encouraging in terms of the type of impact NCVER is striving for. Indeed, the extent of evidence gathered from a relatively small base is surprising.8 We also know our publications are reaching a sizeable number of stakeholders, both in Australia and internationally. In addition, our H-index score, a measure of academic impact, is a respectable 47 across all NCVER-authored publications.
