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.

To view our eligibility requirements in full and for an overview of the TCEA process, please see our TCEA Guidelines.

Applications for the TCEA in 2020 open Thursday, 26 March and close on Friday, 3 July.

For detailed instructions and a step-by-step guide to submitting an application for the TCEA, please see our page How to lodge a TCEA application.

Schools will be notified of application approvals via TRACS during August 2020.

How to submit the descriptive text for approved TCEA applicants

Once an application has been approved by TASC, schools should draft the descriptive text for the student’s Certificate.

Instructions for the descriptive text can be found in TRACS in the submission tab and the template is in the documents tab for each approved applicant.

The completed draft descriptive text for each approved applicant should be uploaded via TRACS by Friday, 16 October 2020.

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