During 2002, TAFE Tasmania delivered 6.46 million hours of accredited vocational education and training, an increase in delivery of 3.8% from 2001. Over 53.8% of these hours were delivered outside the Greater Hobart-Southern Region of the state: 28.7% in the Northern Region and 25.1% in the Mersey-Lyell Region. The Greater Hobart-Southern Region accounted for 44.0% of the total hours delivered.

In the two years 2001 and 2002, the business program delivered the highest number of hours of any program delivered by the Institute on a state-wide basis, providing 16.0% of TAFE Tasmania’s nominal hours of activity in 2002. This program was responsible for the largest number of hours delivered in all Regions.

Hours of activity for male students were higher than those of female students in all three Regions in 2001 and 2002. In all Regions female students recorded higher levels of activity than males in the areas of Community Services and Health, Design and Communication, Drysdale and Business Programs.
