Distance Education Tasmania provides educational programs for students from kindergarten through to Year 10. This modern distance service utilises a combination of teaching methods and multimedia delivery (including on-line delivery to enrolled students) of full-time or part-time educational programs. To be enrolled with Distance Education Tasmania students may qualify under any of the following, strictly applied, criteria:

  • distance from nearest appropriate government school;
  • pregnancy/post-natal reasons;
  • travel/itinerant reasons - either intrastate, interstate or internationally;
  • medical and/or psychological reasons as approved; or
  • exceptional circumstances as approved.

Distance Education Tasmania also manages the provision of educational services at the Royal Hobart Hospital and the Launceston General Hospital and provides assistance on a fee-for-service basis to registered home educators.

In 2001, there were 146 students enrolled through the Distance Education Tasmania Unit.
