Draft legislation for TasTAFE and consultation

Draft legislation for TasTAFE was released for consultation and submissions have now closed.

The TasTAFE (Skills and Training Business) Bill 2021 has passed through Parliament and is available on the Parliament of Tasmania website www.parliament.tas.gov.au

The draft legislation proposes a business model for TasTAFE that has been designed from the ground up to best suit the role and functions of TasTAFE.

Importantly, the draft legislation proposes that TasTAFE staff will transition with:

  • the same terms, conditions and entitlements as set in industrial awards and agreements at the proposed transition date of 1 July 2022; and
  • continuity of service and accruing entitlements (including long service leave, superannuation and defined benefits scheme entitlements) as at the proposed transition date of 1 July 2022.

The following documents are available in accessible versions: the Fact sheet about the TasTAFE transition (links to webpage) and the
