Agency Number: TA1532
Title: TAFE TASMANIA
Start Date: 01 Mar 1994
End Date: 31 Dec 2008
Description:

The Institute of TAFE (Technical and Further Education) began operating in 1994 under the newly formed Department of Department of Industrial Relations, Vocational Education and Training.

Under the TAFE Tasmania Act 1997 it was renamed accordingly. TAFE Tasmania comprised the Hobart, Launceston, North West and Drysdale Institutes of TAFE, the Institute of Adult Education and the Training Operations Division of the former Department of Vocational Education and Training. The new structure remained under the administrative control of DVET until that Department was amalgamated with the Department of Education, Community and Cultural Development on 6 May 1998.

As a result of the State Government's Tasmania Tomorrow initiative; the Tasmanian Academy, the Tasmanian Polytechnic and the The Tasmanian Skills Institute commenced in 2009 as the new education providers for years 11 & 12 students. As a result, TAFE Tasmania and the TAFE Board were abolished under the Education & Training (Repeals & Transitional Provisions) Act 2009 and TAFE evolved into the Tasmanian Polytechnic and The Tasmanian Skills Institute.
