Acknowledgement of Country

We acknowledge the Tasmanian Aboriginal people as the traditional​​​​​​​ custodians of this land,
​​​​​​​and we pay our respects to the elders past, present and future,
​​​​​​​for they hold the memories, traditions, culture and hope ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​of First Nations people in Tasmania.

A casual employment register is not a vacancy and inclusion on a register does not guarantee any offer of employment will be made.

The Aboriginal Sharers of Knowledge (ASK) Program provides Tasmanian Government schools with opportunities to have Aboriginal Community members work alongside teachers to deliver learning opportunities, with a focus on the Australian Curriculum cross-curriculum priority. 

The ASK Program is coordinated by Aboriginal Education Services (AES) and Aboriginal Sharers of Knowledge collaborate with AES and teachers to design and deliver First Nations learning activities and programs.

Aboriginal Sharers of Knowledge provide high level advice and cultural expertise to the ASK Program.

From 3 October 2022, Department of Education has joined with colleagues in the Department of Communities to form the Department for Education, Children and Young People.

This is a Department built entirely for children and young people and their communities.  Our ultimate goal is to work together to ensure that every child and young person in Tasmania is known, safe, well and learning.

The child is at the centre of everything we do and the way we do it.

In the short term, you may still see references to Department of Communities and Department of Education as we transition.  We are working together to build our strategy and our culture and values.  This work will be continuing into 2023, and we want all staff to be involved in this.

It's an important time to join a dynamic new department.
