Colleges are inspiring learning communities that offer a wide range of programs and study options to support your chosen career pathway, whether that be vocational training, further study or moving straight into work after finishing Year 11 and 12. Learning in senior-secondary school prepares you for further education or training in the VET sector, in higher education (university) or in the workplace.
There are eight government colleges in Tasmania – four in the south of the state, two in the north and two in the north-west. Colleges can be contacted directly via the School Directory.
Virtual Learning Tasmania [VLT] provides Tasmanian Government Senior Secondary students with a unique opportunity to undertake courses not available at their base school by studying them online.
In 2020, VLT will be offering a range of courses; including TASC courses at Level 1, 2 and 3 and Certificate II VET courses. Subjects range from English, maths, technologies, HASS, health and science. Course offerings are available from your local school or college (and accessed on the Intranet).
Students enrolled in VLT stay at their local school while accessing course content and teachers online, including all learning resources and assignments. This content can be accessed by students anytime, anywhere.
In addition to the learning they undertake online, VLT students meet with their Online Educator and fellow students in ‘virtual sessions’ which are scheduled for each course. VLT students are also supported by teachers in their base school who assist with study skills and managing their IT resources. VLT courses can contribute to students’ TCE points at the end of the year, upon successful completion of course requirements.
