Our values

The new Department for Education, Children and Young People was established on 1 October 2022. It includes the Department of Education and some areas from the Department of Communities Tasmania.

Work between the two Departments has been underway for many months to ensure the transition to the new Department is as smooth as possible. We will now be deepening our understanding of our new areas and functions and collectively working on new Values for the Department.
