Glossary term: National VET Equity Advisory Council

Acronym: NVEAC

An advisory body that was established in November 2009 to provide independent advice to the Ministerial Council for Tertiary Education and Employment (MCTEE) on how disadvantaged learners can achieve better outcomes from vocational education and training (VET).

NVEAC was dissolved in April 2014 by the newly established COAG Industry and Skills Council (CISC) as part of efforts to streamline the governance arrangements for the national training system. The secretariat functions of NVEAC were brought into the Department of Industry.
