The main purpose of Tasmanian Vocational Education and Training (VET) is to ensure that Tasmanian industry has a well-trained, highly skilled workforce.

A range of vocational and non-vocational courses are offered, including:

  • associate diploma courses aimed at para-professional personnel in areas such as engineering, accounting, computing, child care and social welfare
  • trade courses that combine theoretical and practical aspects of the trade, and off-the-job training
  • post-trade courses to extend the skills and knowledge of tradespersons
  • non-trade vocational programs e.g. fashion, retailing, commercial studies.

Providers of VET courses include:
  • Institute of TAFE Tasmania, which has a state-wide delivery model to enhance the provision of services to industry and the community.
  • the Australian Maritime College, which serves the maritime sector at campuses in Launceston and Beauty Point
  • private trainers, throughout the state.
