Craig FowlerThe National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER) has announced the appointment of Dr Craig Fowler as its new managing director, to succeed Rod Camm who is heading off to the Australian Council for Private Education.  He will assume the post in late October.

In announcing the appointment, the chair of NCVER, Professor Peter Shergold, said that Dr Fowler  has worked in both the private and public sectors, including at very senior levels of the South Australian public service for the last 11 years:

He possesses an exceptional depth of understanding of vocational education and training and the national training system, and a deep sense of the importance of skills acquisition to Australia’s future prosperity.

Professor Shergold emphasized that Dr Fowler will bring to his leadership a strong background in research methodology and commitment to the value that statistical data can play in informing evidence-based policy.

His experience will be invaluable, given that NCVER has been tasked with collecting information on total VET activity for the first time. A unique student identifier will provide a powerful new source of analysis but its introduction will need to be managed with the utmost integrity,

NCVER will continue to be led by Rod Camm until Dr Fowler commences his role, providing for a well-managed transition for the Company and staff.

In announcing Dr Fowler’s appointment, Professor Shergold paid tribute to  Rod Camm:

At a personal level, I am deeply disappointed to see Rod leave. He has had a very positive impact in his time with NCVER.   The Board will miss his strong leadership but fully understand the difficult decision he has had to make. We look forward to working closely with him in his new role as CEO of ACPET.
