Reform of Tasmania’s Public VET System

Reform of Tasmania’s Public VET System

Since the Government announced its response to the Simmons’ report on the role and function of Tasmania’s public VET providers on 5 June 2012, work began on the implementation of recommendations from the report.

Tasmanian Public Sector VET Providers Review - Implementation: Project Business Plan



During the implementation process the focus was on making the transition to TasTAFE as streamlined and as simple as possible for everyone concerned.  This meant:

  • for learners and employers and industry it was business as usual in 2013. 
  • for staff it’s an opportunity to build on past successes and move forward together to provide the Tasmanian community with a ‘one stop shop’ for public VET in Tasmania.

Throughout the process, feedback from a wide range of stakeholders was sought to ensure that TasTAFE is firmly established as an organisation that meets the needs of the community it serves. 

Information on the implementation of TasTAFE, as well as the wider public VET system reforms, is available from the following links:
