When your school registers to provide TASC accredited courses the principal must appoint a staff member as the TASC Liaison Officer (TLO). The TLO ensures the school complies with all TASC policies, procedures and reporting requirements; and facilitates communication between your school and TASC. It is expected that TLOs correspond with TASC directly through the TRACS portal. TASC does not fund the TASC Liaison Officer role.

Key duties are outlined in the sections below:

TASC Liaison Officers ensure that:

TheĀ school registration with TASC is accurate at all times (including the school course scope and student enrolments in the TASC online administration system).

TASC Liaison Officers ensure that:

  • The school complies with any directions made by TASC under Section 33 of the Office of Tasmanian Assessment, Standards and Certification Act 2003 in relation to the provision or assessment of a TASC accredited course.
  • Internal assessment made by the school that contributes to results certified by TASC has an adequate level of reliability, validity and fairness.
  • Assessment materials are collected and provided to TASC when required.
  • Students are correctly and clearly identified in any data provided to TASC.
  • Data provided to TASC is complete and accurate.
  • Applications for reasonable adjustments and extensions to external folio deadlines are endorsed.
  • Information is provided to TASC to confirm school policies, procedures and practices.

TLOs assist their school to meet the requirements in the Standards for Providers. See the Focus Area by Term poster developed to help schools and teachers to keep track of the key areas to focus on year-round and by school term.

TASC Liaison Officers ensure that students, teachers and the school community are adequately and correctly informed about relevant TASC rules, policies, procedures, key dates and events.

The fortnightly TASC Update provides timely information and reminders of upcoming events for dissemination using your school’s communication processes.

The TASC forums and information sessions are great opportunity for school leaders and TASC Liaison Officers to gain information from TASC about current initiatives, upcoming actions and ongoing requirements. Copies of the presentation materials and recordings are available after each event.

Other important information for TASC Liaison Officers can be found on our information for teachers page.
