About the TCEA

The Tasmanian Certificate of Educational Achievement (TCEA) is a quality assured certificate issued by TASC to eligible students at the end of their senior secondary studies.

The TCEA is designed for students for whom certificates such as the Tasmanian Certificate of Education and the Qualifications Certificate do not provide an adequately just and fair account of their participation and achievements in their senior secondary years. Eligible students may include those who cannot meet the requirements for the TCE or a vocational education and training (VET) qualification as strongly as other students.

The process involved has two steps:

  1. Firstly, the school makes the request for a TCEA on behalf of the student and provides supporting information with the request via the TASC student portal – TRACS
  2. Later in the year, (if the request has been approved) the school submits the Descriptive Text detailing each student’s participation and achievements required for the final TCEA (late 2019), this is also submitted via TRACS.

How to submit an application

  1. If you think you may be eligible for the TCEA, please discuss this with the TASC Liaison Officer at your school or college.
  2. Before applying for the TCEA, please read the TCEA Guidelines 2019 . This document includes eligibility criteria for TCEA and what needs to be completed before applying. If you are unsure, then please speak with the TASC Liaison Officer at your school/college.
  3. The school then submits the TCEA for the student through TRACS. The guidelines (above) provide instructions for how to create a TCEA application in TRACS. Alternatively please View the steps in TRACS in this short video.
  4. Later in the year (if the request is approved), the school will submit descriptive text via TRACS.

Applications for the TCEA is open from Monday, 8 April 2019 until Friday, 5 July 2019.

If you have further enquiries please contact the Office of TASC.
