Considering Your Application
A TASC officer will consider the information provided in your application and supporting evidence (details of documents to be submitted with your application are listed on www.tasc.tas.gov.au/2628). A TASC officer will contact you to confirm receipt of your application and advise of the next step in the process.
If you have provided evidence that demonstrates you meet the fit and proper and financial viability requirements as stated in the Tasmanian Qualifications Authority Act 2003, a TASC officer will negotiate a time to conduct an audit of your organisation with you. If you are unable to provide the required evidence the Executive Officer will be informed.
An audit will be conducted to verify the information provided in your application and ensure that your evidence meets the necessary requirements.
More information is available on the audit page.
Once TASC has received your application and completed an audit, including clearing any audit findings, the Executive Officer will consider the application.
The Executive Officer may grant or refuse registration based on the information included in Section 8(2) of the Tasmanian Qualifications Authority Act 2003 and the organisation's compliance with the ESOS legislative Framework including The National Code of Practice for Registration Authorities and Providers of Education and Training to Overseas Students 2007.
The Executive Officer's decision will be communicated to you in writing. An organisation may be registered for a period of up to five years.
If the decision is to refuse registration the applicant has the right to have the decision reviewed, or to re-submit another application at a later date.
If the Executive Officer approves of your application:
- The Department of Education and Training, the Commonwealth delegate in respect to schools under the Education Services for Overseas Students (ESOS) legislative framework, will be informed and the second phase of registration will be undertaken by the Commonwealth delegate. A provider is not registered until both stages of this process have been completed.
- your organisation's details and scope of courses will be entered on Provider Registration and International Students Management Systems (PRISMS)
- You will be provided with a Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS) provider number and CRICOS course code/s
- Your organisation will receive a Certificate of Registration
