The Office of the Education Registrar was established under the Education Act 2016. It is responsible for:

  • the registration and monitoring of home education in Tasmania. The Registrar works closely with home educators to make home education a strong, valued part of our education system.
  • for administering the non-government schools registration process and for the operational aspects of the regulatory process. The Registrar will then report to and advise the Non‑Government Schools Registration Board.
  • for managing the new compulsory conciliation process for non-attendance at school. The conferences will involve everyone necessary to support a resolution to non-attendance, including parents/guardians, the child (if the child wants to), and school staff.

Individual conferences will be run by independent conciliators with a report prepared providing recommendations to the Registrar.

The intent of this process is to improve outcomes for Tasmanian students not currently attending school  by providing those who are responsible for ensuring a child attends school with a way to participate in a process and to voice their needs to enable and support them to ensure the student returns to school.
