We are guided by our values of respect, courage, aspiration and growth in putting our learners first. We are continuously seeking like-minded people to join us in painting a bright future for young Tasmanians. Together we inspire and support all learners to succeed as connected, resilient, creative and curious thinkers.
We are one of the largest government agencies in Tasmania. A range of staff are employed to fulfil organisational and functional needs across a range of areas, particularly in schools and colleges, corporate services, adult and community education, library and archive services. The main occupations include teachers, teacher assistants, librarians, social workers, speech and language pathologists, school psychologists, education facility attendants, general administrative and clerical support.
The Centre for Education and Employment Research aims to speak to those who make education happen – the policy makers and practitioners. Its findings are published in books, reports and articles. Many are covered in news items and Centre staff are often asked to comment on the issues of the day.
The Centre has been directed since its inception by Professor Alan Smithers and one of its first members was Dr Pamela Robinson who is now Deputy Director. At one time they acted as research managers to a large team of researchers and research students. But it was found that educational research is as much art as science and not everyone, no matter how well qualified, is capable of it. The core team, therefore, conduct all the research themselves, hiring help as necessary. They are able to call on the support of Mandy-Diana Coughlan, an IT specialist, and a team of 20 interviewers and clerical assistants. Research assistants and students are appointed for particular projects.
Employees are hired in the State Education Department in accordance with the New York Civil Service Law. Positions in this and other State agencies generally are filled through competitive examinations. Visit the New York State Department of Civil Service for examination announcements and information about how to apply for a Civil Service examination.
