APTA News In Brief – February 2017
The purpose of the Review of Years 9 to 12 in Tasmania was to ‘identify opportunities to improve attendance, retention and attainment outcomes’ (A contract between ACER and the Tasmanian Department of Education, 2016). The Tasmanian Government is implementing reforms to improve students’ retention and attainment in Tasmania’s schools. The Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER) was commissioned to undertake an independent review of Years 9 to 12 concerning the following issues:
• student and workforce data
• curriculum policy and provision (including vocational education and training (VET)
• design and delivery for Years 9 to 12 (which includes the three Tasmanian education sectors: the Tasmanian Catholic Education Office (TCEO), Independent Schools Tasmania (IST) and the Department of Education (DoE)).
