Years 11 and 12

The vast majority of today’s jobs require a Year 12 or higher qualification, and employers are looking for people who are flexible, adaptable and willing to learn new things.

Completing Year 12 or attaining equivalent qualifications should be the aim of all students in Tasmanian Government schools.

In Years 11 and 12, students have access to a wide range of subjects and VET courses offered through a range of options:

  • There are eight senior secondary schools (colleges) in Tasmania that provide a wide range of programs and study options, including flexible learning options, which provides opportunities for students to study off campus.
  • A number of regional and rural schools provide Year 11 and 12 education and training within their local communities.
    • Some of these have programs available through Trade Training Centre (TTC) facilities which are designed to provide practical training using industry-standard equipment.

Your chosen course may be a combination of these available options. Discuss this with your Year 11/12 course counsellor.

For details on where subjects and programs are available go to the Where Do I Study table.

Students are supported in their transition from Year 10 to Years 11 and 12 by support staff found in all secondary schools throughout the state.

Enrolling in VET Programs

Entry to VET programs usually requires a “suitability process”. This is undertaken prior to completing enrolment to ensure that students commence their VET studies in the most appropriate course and at the right level for your learning needs. It may involve an information session, interview and/or an assessment task or test.

It is a prerequisite for enrolment in most VET programs offered in Years 11and 12.

More details will be available from your local senior secondary school.
