Latest update from TASC – COVID-19

TASC is planning ahead to manage senior secondary learning, assessment and certification due to COVID-19.

We appreciate the priority at the moment is to ensure the safety and wellbeing of students. TASC is monitoring the situation and working with the Department of Education to ensure our response is coordinated with that of whole of government.

We are considering options for short, medium, and longer term interruptions for students in regards to their learning and (internal and external) assessment, as well as certification for the Tasmanian Certificate of Education.

TASC is also working with the University of Tasmania as the Tertiary Admissions Centre for Tasmania, and national senior secondary boards of study to consider a coordinated way forward for students, including the management of opportunities for entrance to tertiary studies and the ATAR.

Our priority is ensuring that no student is disadvantaged. We will update the information here as work progresses.
