Tasmanian Department of Education Strategic Plan 2014-2017



The Tasmanian Skills Strategy 2008-2015 (Themes and Actions 2009-2012) aspires to create an inclusive, fair, highly skilled and prosperous Tasmania where:
  • Tasmanians have the skills to participate in a clever and connected community.
  • Together Tasmanians will overcome individual disadvantage and exclusion to increase participation.
  • Providers will partner with industry to deliver skills through high quality services.
  • Employers will build workforce skills to innovate, invest and increase productivity.

Scenarios for Australia to 2025

Australia needs to position itself in a world where work is rapidly changing. ICT, globalisation, the Asian century and new patterns of work are impacting on all of us and the speed of change is making it hard to predict and plan for the future.

To deal with this uncertainty and the limitations of making projections about the future in developing the Future focus, 2013 National Workforce Development Strategy, AWPA developed four possible, plausible scenarios for Australia to 2025. Scenarios are alternative visions of the potential future, and provide a means to make decisions that take account of uncertainty.
National VET E-learning Strategy 2012-15

The National VET E-learning Strategy for 2012-2015 will play a key role in enabling the Australian training sector to take advantage of the roll-out of the National Broadband Network(NBN) to make major advances in the achievement of government training objectives. Coordinated action to develop sector-wide capability in using the new technological environment will, at the same time, stimulate innovative approaches to increasing participation in training and work, and improving the skill levels of the Australian workforce.

Goal 1: Develop and utilise e-learning strategies to maximise the benefits of the national investment in broadband.
Goal 2: Support workforce development in industry through innovative training solutions.
Goal 3: Expand participation and access for individuals through targeted elearning approaches.
E-Standards for Training
The VET E-portfolio Roadmap: a strategic roadmap for e-portfolios to support lifelong learning
