CLAREMONT College is providing students with strongly supported pathways to university, TAFE and industry, with quality teaching focusing on TCE attainment, VET certification and maximising university entrance scores on a modern picturesque campus with industry standard facilities.

A boutique college, we nurture every student, encouraging high aspirations and tailoring programs to meet individual needs.

We are big enough to offer an exciting range of subject choices, but also small enough to provide a caring atmosphere where each student is known personally and supported by a network of teachers and allied professionals to achieve their goals.

Our uniHUB situated on the college campus is the only one in southern Tasmania, allowing Claremont College students access to the University of Tasmania.

Students can now drop in to the uniHUB on the college campus to get advice and assistance in relation to pathways to university study, as well as study support and advice.

An exciting new program at Claremont College, working in conjunction with the uniHUB, is the Claremont College Academic Pathways Program (CCAP), which is designed to mentor and support students on a university pathway.

Its goals are to inspire students to aim high through community engagement and a series of targeted activities, as well as building confidence and strategies for academic study.

In addition to a full suite of TASC courses, Claremont College has an excellent Vocational Education and Training (VET) program managed by experienced staff with long-standing employer networks.

Claremont was the first college to offer Electrotechnology VET in Tasmania and the first in Australia to offer the Australian Defence Forces VET program, which is still going strong in its 15th year, providing many graduates a direct pathway into the ADF.

Introduced this year, Certificate II in Animal Studies can provide a pathway to work and/or study in the animal care and management industry, such as veterinary nursing.

Many of the college’s VET programs have a strong focus on service industries that are expanding in Tasmania, including aged care and disability, children’s services, hospitality and tourism.

Other popular courses in the service industry space include hairdressing – for which a new purpose-built salon has been constructed – and retail skin care and cosmetics.

The VET Hospitality class at Claremont College has strong links with local industry and associations such as the Tasmanian Hospitality Association and the Beacon Foundation.

In an exciting new initiative, the college has a significant partnership with Drysdale TAFE which sees Responsible Service of Alcohol and Espresso Essentials courses offered on campus at the college through Drysdale.

Alongside its VET programs, Claremont College offers many specific industry focused TASC courses that are well-supported by new facilities and equipment.

In the Agricultural Enterprise class, students have the opportunity to run their own real-life agricultural enterprises, including seedling production, egg production and the raising of chickens and piglets.

The Media Production class uses a fully equipped studio with a green screen and drone, and the Digital Art class works with industry-standard software, including Cinema 4D.

Claremont College offers every student the chance to develop a unique set of skills relevant to their personal future.

Whether you are on a university pathway or aiming for employment in an industry or trade, there is a course at Claremont College that will help you to realise your dreams.

Join us in 2021 and step into your future.
