The Tasmanian Polytechnic was created from the merger of Tasmanian Colleges and TAFE Tasmania, following the Tasmanian State Government's reform of post-year 10 education in 2009. This significant restructure envisaged taking place over a 3-year period with the expectation of all colleges making the transition by 2011. One of three new organisations created through the Tasmania Tomorrow reforms, the Tasmanian Polytechnic focuses on providing practical and hands-on learning for students of all ages. It co-operates with the Tasmanian Academy and with the Tasmanian Skills Institute to deliver more positive outcomes for students, for the local economy and for Tasmania.
