To achieve the Tasmanian Certificate of Education (TCE), a student needs to meet all of the TCE Standards:
- Participation and Achievement Standard:
- 120 credit points (at Level 1, 2, 3 or 4),
- at least 80 of those credit points in studies of Level 2 or higher.
- Everyday Adult Standards:
- Reading, Writing and Communication (in English)
- Use of Computers and the Internet.
Participation and Achievement Standard
Students can include VET in their study programs for meeting the Participation and Achievement Standard of the TCE. TASC recognises VET that:
- is nationally recognised and listed at training.gov.au
- is delivered, assessed and reported by Registered Training Organisations (RTOs)
- is delivered and assessed in accordance with the VET Quality Framework
Everyday Adult Standards
Students undertaking VET who want to attain the TCE will have to show that they meet an Everyday Adult Standard by:
- successfully completing a TCE course that includes that Everyday Adult Standard, or
- sitting and passing an Everyday Adult Standard safety-net test.
The TCE Course Planner or Courses webpages will show if a course includes an Everyday Adult Standard. To demonstrate meeting the Standard embedded in a course, students need to complete the course with an award of Satisfactory Achievement (or higher).
TASC does not recognise completion of VET Units of Competency or qualifications as evidence that a student has achieved an ‘Everyday Adult Standard’.
