Staff from Guilford Young College plan to work alongside their project college colleagues. They will support teachers in their professional development in course counselling as they prepare to guide and counsel 2022 Year 10 students with Year 11 and 12 subject choices.
The Office of the Education Registrar is working with St Aloysius Catholic College staff on developing the required documentation to deliver Years 11 and 12. This will support the College’s proposed opening of their senior campus serving families from Kingborough and beyond at the start of 2022, and delivery of senior secondary education from 2023.
The Office of Tasmanian Assessment, Standards and Certification (TASC) provides professional development opportunities for teachers who are new to teaching TASC courses. TASC is a key stakeholder in this project and meeting the TASC Standards is a requirement in the delivery of senior secondary education in Tasmania. CET staff from across the colleges extending to Year 11 and 12 will attend sessions to support them in developing the TASC Scope and Sequence documents that will detail the course content delivered for students.
In March staff from St Aloysius Catholic College, St Virgil’s College and MacKillop Catholic College, along with staff from the Tasmanian Catholic Education Office, attended a TASC Quality Assurance Workshop.
The workshop—held by Mike Jenkins from TASC—provided staff with the opportunity to work alongside TASC to consolidate each colleges’ key documentation for Years 11 and 12. Staff found the workshop informative, particularly as it also allowed time to engage with and learn from staff from Department of Education colleges who have recently extended to offer Years 11 and 12.
