From 3 October 2022, Department of Education has joined with colleagues in the Department of Communities to form the Department for Education, Children and Young People.
This is a Department built entirely for children and young people and their communities. Our ultimate goal is to work together to ensure that every child and young person in Tasmania is known, safe, well and learning.
The child is at the centre of everything we do and the way we do it.
In the short term, you may still see references to Department of Communities and Department of Education as we transition. We are working together to build our strategy and our culture and values. This work will be continuing into 2023, and we want all staff to be involved in this.
It's an important time to join a dynamic new department.
Undertake and manage complex regulatory activities by assessing applications related to the registration of Non-government schools in Tasmania and conducting registration visits in accordance with the Education Act 2016, together with providing high-level advice, and timely reports and recommendations to the Registrar, Education (Registrar) and the Non-Government Schools Registration Board.
