5 Using this course information handbook The Course Information Handbook is designed to assist you in choosing subjects and programs of study for Years 11 and 12. The information is accurate at the time of printing. The up-to-date online version of this guide is available at Pages/Years-11-and-12.aspx For each of the subjects and programs available in Years 11 and 12 the handbook includes detailed information on what you will learn about and the type of learning activities involved, as well as any prerequisites needed and where they might lead to. Subject and program descriptions are organised in the following learning areas: Creative Arts Performing Creative Arts Visual English Foods and Hospitality Health and Physical Education Information Technology Languages Mathematics Mixed Field Programs Programs for Students with High or Additional Learning Needs Science and Primary Industries Society and Environment Behavioural Studies Business and Law History, Culture and the Environment Technologies and Trades. 5 Not all subjects and programs are available in all regions, nor at all Year 11/12 campuses. For details on where programs are delivered, visit the online Where Do I Study (www.education.tas.gov.au/parents_carers/schools-colleges/ Pages/Years-11-and-12.aspx) table to find details on subjects and programs available at your preferred school. Steps to planning your Year 11 and 12 studies You need Year 11 and 12 qualifications to be considered for the majority of jobs being advertised today. During Year 10 you will work with your teachers to gather information about possible careers, explore options relevant to your interests and ability, and plan how you might achieve your personal and career goals. Your teachers will help you to identify your ambitions and expectations for the future, and also be on hand to provide advice about making the transition to Year 11. Planning your 11 and 12 program is not about locking in a decision for your future career. It s more about exploring your interests, abilities and goals and the types of things you will need to do in the future if you want to achieve those goals. When deciding on a program or course of study for Years 11 and 12, make sure you: Choose programs and subjects that will enable you to obtain the TCE Plan a two year program relevant to your goals and interests, keeping in mind that some subjects have pre-requisites Read the course details carefully and ask your teachers for more information if you need it Use the online Where Do I Study (www.education.tas.gov. au/parents_carers/schools-colleges/pages/years-11-and-12.aspx) tables to see where you can study the programs and subjects you are interested in (keep in mind that it is possible to study subjects and programs at more than one place). You may choose to do a Vocational Education and Training (VET) program, TASC subjects, or a combination of both.

6 6 Understanding the terminology Vocational Education and Training (VET) VET is a style of learning that focuses on learning through doing. VET qualifications are recognised nationally, and are developed with industry consultation and for industryspecific requirements. This gives you real-life, practical and industry-relevant skills. Most courses also provide you with the opportunity to undertake work placements so you can get a real understanding of the industry and an opportunity to develop tangible links to employment. More detailed information is available on the National Training Information Service website: In Years 11 and 12, VET subjects ranging from Certificate I to Certificate IV are available, with many continuing through to Advanced Diploma level after Year 12. Many VET Diploma and Advanced Diploma courses allow you to articulate through to university, which reduces the time and money you need for a degree. Where there is an articulation arrangement, you may receive generous credit towards your university degree based on the VET study you have undertaken. The Office of Tasmanian Assessment, Standards and Certification (TASC) previously the Tasmanian Qualifications Authority (TQA) TASC is the qualifications authority for Tasmania. It makes decisions about senior secondary courses, assessment, certificates, qualifications and the application to these of national and state standards. TASC subjects TASC subjects provide a broad range of learning opportunities which can lead to employment and further education. TASC subjects are organised into four levels of difficulty levels 1, 2, 3 and 4 (with 4 being the most difficult). Level 3 and 4 subjects, also known as pre-tertiary subjects, can contribute to an Australian Tertiary Admission Ranking (ATAR) (more information following). Level 1 and 2 subjects are non-pre-tertiary and do not count towards an ATAR but do count towards the TCE. They can be preliminary or foundation study for a pre-tertiary program. More detailed information is available on the TASC website: Tertiary Entrance score (TE) TASC calculates a score for each pre-tertiary subject. Your TE score is the combined scores of your best four or five pre-tertiary subjects over two years. At least three of these must be completed in your final year of senior secondary study. The TE score is then used to calculate an ATAR. Australian Tertiary Admission Ranking (ATAR) The ATAR is used by Australian Universities to allocate places to students. Your ATAR is calculated automatically by TASC from your results in Level 3 and 4 (pre-tertiary) subjects. The University of Tasmania has indicated that from 2016 onwards, students will also have to meet the standards for the Tasmanian Certificate of Education (TCE) to be eligible for the calculation of an ATAR. Entry requirements vary by course and by university. Generally, the higher your ATAR, the better your chances are of being accepted into your preferred course. That is why the personalised learning support you will receive is so important. It will help you to maximise your ATAR. TASC will advise eligible students of their TE score and ATAR in late December. Tasmanian Certificate of Education (TCE) The Tasmanian Certificate of Education is a qualification that has five standards: Everyday adult reading, writing and communication (literacy skills) Everyday adult maths (numeracy skills) Everyday adult use of computers and the internet (ICT skills) Completing a full program as part of your senior secondary education and training (participation and achievement) Development and review of plans for your future (Pathway Planning). Students must meet all five standards to achieve a Tasmanian Certificate of Education. Full details on the Tasmanian Certificate of Education can be found at the TASC website:

7 7 Making up a course of study A full-time senior secondary course in Years 11 and 12 will total a minimum of 600 hours per year. Year 12 students should include a minimum of two pre-tertiary subjects or a Certificate program. If you are interested in a pathway to a vocational qualification Your course should be centred around a vocational (VET) certificate program in your chosen industry area. This can lead you to direct employment, higher level Certificate and Diploma programs, and university courses. You can make up the 600 hours by choosing some TASC accredited subjects to add to your certificate program. These may complement your vocational learning, and may also include some recreational and interest subjects. If you are interested in a pathway to a University qualification You will need to plan a two-year course keeping in mind that some subjects are prerequisites to certain university courses. Most Year 11 courses should feature some English and Maths because they are fundamental to a broad range of options available at the end of Year 12. How do you know what level to do? Year 10 students enrolling in Year 11 in 2016 It is really important that you talk to your teachers early in the year to work out what standard you are at, and if this is good enough for the types of things you want to do next year in Year 11. At enrolment, the course counsellors will discuss your results and advise you about which subjects will suit you best in Years 11 and 12. The best indicator is how well you have done in the past. Look at your results in English-literacy and Maths-numeracy: If you are achieving an A/B (or C in consultation with teachers) in Year 10 Australian Curriculum subjects, you could enrol in Level 3 subjects in Year 11. If you are achieving a C/D rating in Australian Curriculum subjects, Level 2 subjects provide the necessary foundation leading to Level 3 in Year 12. In the areas of Arts and Technology, a strong interest and experience in optional classes in High School or a personal involvement in community-based learning could give you confidence to try Level 3 subjects. Year 11 students enrolling in Year 12 in 2016 You can make up the 600 hours by choosing four TASC subjects. Discuss your proposed learning pathway with your senior secondary school/college teachers. These may be directly relevant to your career direction and may also include some recreation and interest subjects.

8 How do I enrol? There is a range of options for studying Years 11 and 12. There are eight senior secondary schools (colleges) in Tasmania that provide a wide range of programs and study options, including enrolment in the Flexible Learning Network (FLN), which provides opportunities for students to study off campus. A number of regional and rural schools provide Year 11 and 12 education and training within their local communities. Some of these have programs available through Trade Training Centre (TTC) facilities which are designed to provide practical training using industry-standard equipment. For details on which subjects and programs are available in which locations go to the online Where Do I Study tables (www.education.tas.gov.au/parents_carers/schools-colleges/ Pages/Years-11-and-12.aspx) Your chosen course may be a combination of these available options. Discuss this with your teachers. Year 10 students in government schools If you are currently attending a government school, your Year 10 coordinator or teachers will give you details about how you can access the information you need to enrol. Your school will make all the arrangements for your enrolment into Year 11 and you will have the opportunity to attend information and taster days later in the year. For senior secondary school (college) courses you will enrol through your preferred college. Your college will then organise your access to the subjects and programs at the senior secondary school/college that will deliver your course of study. For courses that are offered at your local school, enrolment will be through your school. Present Year 11 students in government schools You will enrol through your current school. Other students, including non-government school students You will enrol through a senior secondary school or college in your region. You should contact the school or college for details to arrange course counselling and enrolment. Step One Step Two Step Three Year 10 students Speak with your teachers and Year 10 Coordinator about course options that suit your interests and goals. Year 11 students Review your Pathway Plan. Year 10 students Attend information and taster days to help with your decision about which courses and programs are right for you. Year 11 students Discuss options with your present teachers and career counsellors. All Find out details on and attend suitability sessions for VET Programs. Year 10 in Government School Your school will assist you with your enrolment. Year 10 in Non-Government School Enrol directly through your chosen senior secondary school. Year 11 students Enrol through your current school. 8 Enrolling in VET programs Entry to VET programs usually requires a suitability process. This is undertaken prior to completing enrolment to ensure that you commence your VET studies in the most appropriate course and at the right level for your learning needs. It may involve an information session, interview and/or an assessment task or test. It is a prerequisite for enrolment in most VET programs offered in Years 11and 12. More details will be available from your teachers or your local senior secondary school or college. The University College Program The University College Program enables eligible Year 11 and 12 students to undertake introductory level university units at the same time or in addition to their TCE studies. Students can extend their TASC subject enrolment where the TASC subject curriculum closely aligns to a University of Tasmania first year unit, or study full university units. Unit delivery is either college based, college and university combined, or solely on-campus at the university. All colleges have close links with the University of Tasmania and provide the opportunity to participate in a range of programs and activities including: University College Program, where you can undertake university subjects while studying for your TCE in many areas University of Tasmania High Achiever Program Course, scholarship and application information sessions Step up program using university library resources For further information please see: or call (03)
