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

The TCEA is intended for the small number of students whose participation and achievements in senior secondary studies are best represented through descriptive text. Eligible students may include those who cannot meet the requirements for the Tasmanian Certificate of Education (TCE) or a vocational education and training (VET) qualification as strongly as other students.

For further information about this process, please read the Guidelines: Tasmanian Certificate of Educational Achievement.

If you think you may be eligible for the TCEA, please discuss this with the TASC Liaison Officer at your school/college.

Applications for the TCEA opened on Friday, 6 April 2018 and closed on Friday, 6 July 2018 and were submitted using the Tasmanian Certificate of Educational Achievement Application form.

In preparation for issuing the TCEA, schools are asked to submit a descriptive text detailing each student’s participation and achievements (by Friday 2 November 2018). Schools can use the online Tasmanian Certificate of Educational Achievement Written Content Submission form to upload their submissions.
