The TCE Module
The final two years of secondary education lead to the award of the Qualification Certificate and the Tasmanian Certificate of Education. In these final school years we prepare students for further study, work and their future. Students at this level can follow general or specialised courses. Provision is made for both academic and vocational pathways.Students in Grades 11 and 12 will work towards the award of the Tasmanian Certificate of Education. Their subjects are organised in five lines and each line is allocated 12 lessons per cycle which are organised into 6 double lessons. Those students continuing on to tertiary education aim to achieve an ATAR (Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank) Score. Others may choose a vocationally oriented programme gaining national industry certification and workplace experience. Students choose a programme of study which totals a minimum of 1200 hours over the two years; this is the equivalent of four pre-tertiary subjects in each year. The requirements of the TCE and subjects available for study are fully outlined in the academic programme below.
