Did you know? Unlike all other Australian states, primary and secondary education in Tasmania is a three-tiered system, instead of a two-tiered system. School are broken up into Primary, High school and College components!
The education system in Tasmania comprises two tertiary education institutions; the government run K-12schooling system, and numerous independent private schools and colleges, most of which are controlled or sponsored by religious organisations. Public education in Tasmania is managed primarily by the State Government’s Department of Education. The Department is responsible for all aspects of education in Tasmania including schooling, Adult Education, the State Library and TasTAFE, a vocational tertiary institution with many campuses around the state.
The Office of Tasmanian Assessment, Standards and Certification (TASC) is an independent statutory office responsible to the Tasmanian Minister for Education and Training.
TASC is responsible for the development of appropriate standards, the accreditation of courses, and the assessment and certification of student achievement in senior secondary schooling across all educational sectors in Tasmania. You can learn more about the TASC here.
