Let’s get

In Tasmania, everyone needs to finish Year 12 (or meet a leaving requirement). But the way you finish school these days is very different from the past. There are lots of ways you can do it—more than ever before.

It all depends on what you’re interested in, and what you want to do after school. Talk to your parents and teachers, and have a good look at your options.  Start thinking about what you might do next – get a job? Continue studying? That way, you can make sure you finish school with the skills and knowledge you need to get you on the right track.

If you’re in Year 9 or 10, talk to your teachers about your options for Years 11 and 12, and what will work best for you. You can also contact your local school or college about the programs they offer. Or you can check out the Year 11 and 12 Course Guide.

You can also contact the Department of Education by calling (03 6165 5761 or email years9to12learning@education.tas.gov.au to find out more.
