The National Center for Research in Vocational Education is supported by the Office of Vocational and Adult Education of the U.S. Department of Education. NCRVE is involved in developing new ideas in vocational education while strengthening career-related course offerings. The Center also emphasizes integrating curricula with an emphasis on learning through applied problem solving and preparing students for "immediate employment, further education, and lifelong learning."
