Participation and Achievement

The TCE requires 'a significant amount of learning at a set standard'. TASC will recognise a very broad range of learning, and is very flexible about where, when and how that learning happens.

To do this, each type of learning is given a 'credit point' value. A credit-point value shows the amount of learning at a set standard that can count towards the TCE. To meet the participation and achievement standard for the TCE, a student will need to have 120 credit points in senior secondary education and training, with at least 80 credit points in studies at Level 2 or higher.

Many students will show that they meet or do better than this standard with a reasonably challenging two-year programme of study at senior secondary level with at least 1,200 hours of study in senior secondary subjects. Others will show that they meet or do better than this standard with a full program of VET units of competency. Some students will use combinations of senior secondary studies, VET units and other qualifications we recognise.
