                                                               first steps into your future career pathway.

                                         Welcome
                                         Years 11 and 12 are two of the most important years of your education. They are the
                                         last steps of your schooling life but the first steps into your future career pathway.
                                         As young Tasmanians you will play an important role in the future of our state because
                                         when you enter the workforce you will be helping to build our state and our economy.
                                         The 2018 Student Guide for Years 11 and 12 provides you with the information you
                                         need to choose the best program of study. Many of you will already know what career
                                         you are interested in, some others won’t. The good news is that our schools offer you
                                         many options. You can either study a broad range of subjects so that you can keep
                                         your options open whilst you make further decisions, or you can tailor your learning to
                                         achieve particular career or pathway requirements.
                                         You can access Years 11 and 12 through colleges and most high or district schools.
                                         We want you to have every opportunity to study what you enjoy most. In the Guide
                                         you will find information on subjects that support pathways in to further study,
                                         vocational training or prepare you to move into the workplace.
                                         As you think about your choices it is important to remember that most employers
                                         and universities are now looking for evidence that you have completed the Tasmanian
                                         Certificate of Education (TCE). So before you make any decisions, do some research;
                                         look at the information you have gathered through My Education, use the information
                                         in the Guide, and talk with your teachers, parents or carers, or people in your career
                                         area of interest.
                                         As you complete Year 12 you will not only have become an adult but will have also
                                         reached a significant milestone in your journey as a lifelong learner.
                                         I wish you well in your studies for 2018 and beyond.
