About ACER

The Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER) is one of the world’s leading educational research centres. Our mission is to promote research-based knowledge, products and services that can be used to improve learning across the life span.  Our goals are focused on supporting learners and learning professionals, supporting those who maintain educational institutions and systems, and supporting our learning society.

ACER has built a strong reputation as a provider of reliable support and expertise to education policymakers and professional practitioners since it was established in 1930.

As an independent non-government organisation, ACER generates its entire income through contracted research and development projects, and through developing and distributing products and services, with operating surplus directed back into research and development. So you can be confident that ACER has the interests of your school and its students at heart. 

We look forward to working with you to achieve our vision of a society in which every learner experiences success and has an opportunity to achieve their potential.
