From 2020, all young people must participate in education or training until they complete Year 12, attain a Certificate III, or they turn 18 years of age, whichever occurs first. (Education Department Tasmania)
After year 10...
After Year 10, a young person can choose any of the following education and training options, or a combination of these options if the provider/s allow:
- Years 11 and 12 at any government or non-government school or college, or tertiary provider – this may include an Australian School-based Apprenticeship
- a Vocational Education and Training (VET) qualification through any registered training organisation.
- an apprenticeship or traineeship with an employer.
- Young people with full-time employment, or other specific circumstances, can apply for an exemption to allow them to leave education and training.
