What's New?

TCSI Support email update

As we further integrate our support capability across the Department of Education, Skills and Employment and Services Australia, there will be a change of address for the TCSI Support Mailbox.

This change will take effect from COB today (8 May 2020), and we will continue to service the sector for all TCSI related enquiries as usual through our new email address at tcsisupport [at] dese.gov.au.

We will continue to follow-up on and respond to any currently open enquiries, and will also monitor the existing mailbox for the next two weeks to re-direct any emails.

Thank you for your patience and support through this change.
