The Hodgman Liberal Government is committed to improving education, to ensure every Tasmanian student has the best chance at gaining a job and living a fulfilling life.

It is clear Tasmanians are supportive of this through their participation in our review of the Tasmanian Education Act.

A series of community consultation forums will be held in July, to give Tasmanians a chance to find out about the feedback to date and to help tease out the emerging issues relating to the Education Act.

We are committed to consulting with key education stakeholders and the Tasmanian community, and I encourage all to come along and have their say on the way education will look into the future.

Details of the forums have now been finalised and include:

• Hobart, Monday July 27, 4:00pm to 6:00pm
• Hobart, Tuesday July 28, 12:00pm to 2:00pm
• Hobart (Eastern Shore), Tuesday July 28, 7:00pm to 9:00pm
• Glenorchy, Wednesday July 29, 9:00am to 11:00am
• Launceston, Wednesday July 29, 5:30pm to 7:30pm
• Launceston, Thursday July 30, 12:00pm to 2:00pm
• St Helens, Wednesday August 5, 10:00am to 12:00pm
• Devonport, Thursday July 30, 5:00pm to 7:00pm
• Burnie, Friday July 31, 11:00am to 1:00pm
• Queenstown, Friday July 31, 4:30pm to 6:30pm

This is the next important stage of an extensive consultation process, which will ensure we have modern delivery models to reflect contemporary educational practices and make sure it meets the needs of our students into the future.

Those interested in attending should RSVP by July 17 to comments@education.tas.gov.au with their chosen session. An information pack and venue details will be provided to registered attendees.
