Project Overview

The Years 9 to 12 Project was established as a result of the 2016 Review of Years 9 to 12 Tasmania by the Australian Council for Educational Research which outlined a range of opportunities and recommendations to improve attendance, retention and attainment outcomes for students in Tasmania.

The Project is a joint initiative of Catholic Education Tasmania, Independent Schools Tasmania, the Department of Education, TasTAFE, the University of Tasmania, Skills Tasmania and the Office of Tasmanian Assessment, Standards and Certification.

Purpose

The purpose of the Years 9 to 12 Project is to enable all students to achieve their potential through Years 9 to 12 and beyond in further study, training and employment.

The project aims to achieve this by making education in Tasmania more meaningful and engaging to Year 9 to 12 students and thereby improving the:

  • numbers of students staying in school through to Year 12 and/or further training and education
  • attendance rates of students at school and/or further training and education
  • achievement of students in the career pathway they choose.
