In Australia, the Australian Council for Educational Research Limited (ACER) has operated as an independent, not-for-profit research organisation, limited by guarantee, since it was established in April 1930.
ACER undertakes a wide range of commissioned educational research from early childhood to vocational and higher education for Commonwealth, State and Territory governments and non-government education providers and clients. We also provide research-based resources and services, including professional learning programs, to Australian educators, psychologists and human resources professionals and are registered in Australia as a Higher Education provider.
ACER's Australian offices are located in Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney. Contact ACER.
The Reconciliation Action Plan spells out ACER's commitment to the reconciliation process in Australia and identifies how we intend to create a culture of respect, to build more effective relationships and to create improved employment opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
