The CEAV has a forty plus year history of providing quality resources and training to career practitioners. In 2000, CEAV became a founding member of the Careers Industry Council of Australia (CICA) the national peak industry body for the careers profession. The industry sets the Professional Standards for our work with members.

In 2014, the association commenced trading as the Australian Centre for Career Education (ACCE) to reflect our increased capacity to provide a more holistic approach to career education services for its members and the broader community.

In response to the demand for formal qualifications in the career industry and driven by the CICA Professional Standards for Australian Career Development Practitioners CEAV Institute was established. CEAV Institute is a nationally accredited RTO with ASQA, the national regulator, and currently provides training in career development to staff in a range of organisations including: the Department of Education and Training (DET), the Department of Human Services (DHS), Job Services Australia, Disability Employment Services, Tertiary Institutions and Corporate organisations.

CEAV Institute uses highly qualified and experienced career development professionals to deliver both accredited and non-accredited training.
