Course accreditation

Under the Office of Tasmanian Assessment, Standards and Certification Act 2003 TASC has the power to accredit, and set standards for, senior secondary courses in Tasmania. This ensures the quality and integrity of qualifications.

For information about new and revised accredited courses for each year, see the pages ‘Courses accredited from Year’ in the page menu above.

The TASC Course accreditation policy outlines the scope and requirements of course accreditation.

Courses are accredited in accordance with the priorities and standards outlined in the Senior secondary accreditation framework.

The Accreditation Advisory Group (AAG) provides advice and support to the Executive Officer, TASC in relation to senior secondary courses, in line with the AAG Terms of Reference. Specifically, the AAG considers submissions for the accreditation of new courses, requests for amendments to existing courses, courses submitted for accreditation renewal, and the cancelation of courses. AAG recommendations then inform the Executive Officer’s decisions regarding such matters.

Amendments to accredited courses

Requests for amendments to TASC accredited courses are undertaken by Years 9 to 12 Learning, Department for Education, Children and Young People. Please email with your specific request.
