The National Careers Institute

The National Careers Institute (NCI) was established to ensure people have access to authoritative and accurate careers information and support irrespective of their age or career stage.

Our vision is to be Australia’s recognised source of independent and impartial careers information.

The foundation of our work is the world-leading labour market intelligence provided by the National Skills Commission.
