If you have an interest in Home Education or wish to find out the requirements that need to be met for you to legally home educate in Tasmania, you would be strongly advised to contact THEAC in the early stages of your Journey.

www.theac.org.au saidThe Tasmanian Home Education Advisory Council was established in 1993 to advise the Minister for Education and the general public on matters to do with home education and to register and monitor individual home education programs.
The Council is not part of the Department of Education, it is an independent advisory council established and therefore directly responsible to the Minister under the Education Act regulations relating to Advisory Councils.
THEAC provides a reference point for queries, responds to community concerns and maintains liaison with other agencies about home education.
Council employs four part-time staff, two Administration Officers and two Monitoring Officers.
THEAC is made up of six voluntary members, three of whom are nominated by home educators, and three appointed by the Minister from the wider Tasmanian community.
