Course Development in 2020?
- New courses are now being developed during 2020 and 2021, for delivery in 2022 subject to accreditation.
As part of the development for Vocational Learning and VET there are some new approaches under the Vision for Vocational Learning and VET in Tasmanian Schools to 2030:
- Formal consultation on the draft Vocational Learning in Tasmanian Schools Framework and the draft Requirements and Guidelines for the delivery of VET to school students was paused.
How you can get involved?
The Tasmanian Government is committed to ensuring that teachers are a key partner in the course development process.
There will be opportunities for teachers to be involved in each stage of the course development process, through consultation, collaborative planning, sponsorship and professional networking.
These opportunities to collaborate with the Years 9 to 12 Project and the Years 9-12 Learning – Curriculum team on course development for 2022 are available to teachers, schools and relevant stakeholders throughout 2020 and 2021.
