As per the TASC Registration Policy, all schools and other education providers that intend to deliver TASC accredited courses, and require TASC to issue formal qualifications, must register with TASC each year.

The registration process is outlined below:

Schools and other education providers that intend to deliver TASC accredited courses, and require TASC to issue formal qualifications, must register with TASC each year. A registration form is sent to schools in February. View example 2018 Word or pdf registration form.

To meet TASC requirements, schools must agree to have clear internal policies and procedures for:

Schools not delivering TASC accredited courses are not required to register. This includes when an enrolled student attends another delivery school to participate in a TASC accredited course. The delivery school will inform TASC of the students’ TASC course enrolments.

All schools outline their TASC accredited course offerings for the year (in a tool sent by TASC). This includes all pre level to level 4 courses and becomes the TASC School Scope.

International Baccalaureate Diploma, University Connections Program and Higher Achievement Program are not included in the course scope (rather these are listed on the student enrolment form).

View example 2018 template sent by TASC.  Email execofficer@tasc.tas.gov.au to request changes to your TASC school scope.  TASC will assess your request to determine if the associated quality assurance and assessment requirements can be met.

The teachers of the courses that schools will be offering are also listed in the TASC School Scope. As teaching staff change throughout the year, schools will need to notify TASC via an email to execofficer@tasc.tas.gov.au.  TASC maintains a list of all teachers of each course.

Note that TASC accredited senior secondary courses are designed for study by learners after the completion of Year 10. The F-10 Australian Curriculum, as authorised by the Ministerial Council, is the curriculum that is taught pre-Year 11. In special cases, and as extensions (not replacement) to the F-10 Australian Curriculum, TASC will consider requests to deliver and assess accredited courses to Year 10 students.

Using an excel spreadsheet sent by TASC, schools outline information about each individual Year 10, 11, 12 and 13 enrolment (in TASC accredited courses). This includes students who are:

  • undertaking the International Baccalaureate Diploma)
  • enrolled at another school (home school) but attending the delivery school for one or more courses
  • exchange and full fee paying international

The following information is provided for each student:

  • the TASC accredited and CCAFL* courses the student is enrolled in at the school
  • the TASC accredited and CCAFL* courses the student is enrolled in at other schools
  • the University of Tasmania units the student is enrolled in through the University Connections Program and Higher Achievement Program.

*CCAFL or Collaborative Curriculum and Assessment Framework for Languages courses (CCAFL) are externally assessed.

Vocational education and training (VET) enrolment information is not included in the TASC student enrolment. Registered training organisations delivering training to Tasmanian clients provide TASC with quarterly data.

Please note, schools offering education or training to K-13 international students must apply to TASC to register to provide education services to international students.

Government school student enrolment data is retrieved from Edupoint.

Using an excel spreadsheet sent by TASC, all non-registered, non-government schools outline their Year 10 student enrolments. This data assists with transition planning processes and Direct Continuation reporting.

TASC requires ALL students studying one or more TASC accredited courses to check and sign a new Registration Form each year, declaring they are aware of, and will comply with, all relevant TASC requirements.

The requirements are outlined in:

  1. the TASC Authenticity and Academic Integrity Guide (tasc.tas.gov.au/students/assessment)
  2. the TASC External Assessment Rules (tasc.tas.gov.au/students/assessment/rules)

If the student is under 18 years old they should discuss these documents with their parent, guardian or carer.

Pre-printed Registration Forms for each student are sent to schools mid-year.

TASC will not accept and certify student results if they do not complete the Registration Form.  For this reason, schools should ensure that all students complete the Registration Form (this includes students with illness or attendance issues).

TASC provides schools with spare Registration Forms for students who have recently moved to the school. For this reason, students who have withdrawn from a school do not need to complete the Registration Form at that school, but must do so at their new school.

Students who have withdrawn from school do not need to complete a Registration Form but schools will need to update the student enrolment status in EduPoint or the CMS.

Unsigned Registration Forms will be returned by TASC to the school.

Students must check their Registration Form for accuracy. Any amendments to name, address or date of birth should be made on the form by the student then updated by the TASC Liaison Officer in the relevant systems before returning the signed forms to TASC. TASC will not make the changes.

  • Government schools – please ensure that EduPoint is updated with any changes (including enrolment status – withdrawn)
  • Non-Government schools – please ensure that the CMS is updated with any changes (including enrolment status – withdrawn).

Government school student enrolment data is maintained in Edupoint.

When students withdraw from a non-government school:

  • The school deletes the student’s enrolments in each course in the CMS.
  • The school informs TASC, providing the student name, TASC ID and school they have moved to.
  • TASC updates the school enrolment record and informs EPR to ensure that the student is not listed as LEFT in the records until rollover the following year.

When students arrive at a non-government school mid-year:

  • The school informs TASC, providing the student name, TASC ID (if available) and school they have moved from.
  • TASC updates the school enrolment record and informs EPR to ensure that the student is listed in the new school records.

When students at a non-government school change their name:

  • The school verifies the name change and informs TASC, providing the student’s old and new names and TASC ID.
  • TASC updates the student record and informs EPR to ensure that the student is listed correctly.

When home-schooled students change their name:

  • Students not at a school must notify TASC of a name change. Students must write to the TASC Executive Officer (execofficer@tasc.tas.gov.au) and provide their old and new names and TASC ID. A copy of the certificate of change of name or passport (with the new name) must be provided. Alternatively both parents named on the student’s birth certificate can provide TASC with a copy of their photo ID and written consent for the name change.

Each year TASC collects from schools a fee for each full-fee paying international student (500 Visa) enrolled in one or more TASC senior secondary courses.

TASC has the power to charge fees in relation to services provided for international students, under the Office of Tasmanian Assessment, Standards and Certification Act 2003.

The fee is payable for a student who has participated in one or more TASC accredited course, including courses that are not externally assessed (or completed) and is enrolled on 1 September.

Data identifying full-fee paying students from overseas registered to Tasmanian schools/colleges, is sourced from the Provider Registration and International Student Management System (PRISMS).

The fee for 2018 is $396.40, exclusive of GST, for each student. Every year the fee is increased to reflect the current Reserve Bank of Australia official inflation rate. The fee was $389 in 2017 and $382 in 2016.

Any queries relating to this process should be sent to accounts@tasc.tas.gov.au.

The pathway planning standard of the Tasmanian Certificate of Education requires students to develop a pathway plan during Year 10 and review their progress before they finish their senior secondary education and training.

In October, Transition Plan forms are sent to non-government school by TASC for each student in Year 10.
