For more information about vocational education and training see the Department of Education website at http://www.education.tas.gov.au.
VET is governed in Tasmania by the Vocational Education and Training Act 1994 (Tas.) under the Minister for Education.
The Minister is advised by the Tasmanian State Training Authority (TASTA) in planning vocational education policy, and by its two statutory committees, the Tasmanian Accreditation and Recognition Committee (TAReC) and the Tasmanian Training Agreements Committee (TTAC). TAReC and TTAC have executive powers in relation to the recognition of training, and the management of training agreements respectively.
The Office of Post-Compulsory Education and Training (OPCET), Department of Education, provides policy advice and administrative support to the Minister and secretariat services to TASTA, TTAC and TAReC.
VET provision in Tasmania consists of delivery of a wide range of nationally endorsed qualifications by 136 Tasmanian registered training organisations (RTOs). To view a map showing the location of these organisations, see the National Training Information Service web site at http://www.ntis.gov.au.
In addition to Tasmanian registered training organisations, those registered in other States can also operate in the State.
