  • Key Messages

  • Video- introduction/overview

2012 -Western Australian Context

  • For Semester 1, 2012 it is expected that teachers will continue to prepare for implementation of Phase 1 of the Australian Curriculum. This may include identifying gaps in present curriculum provision, beginning to up-skill staff in the new requirements and developing school plans to prepare for implementation.

  • Schools will not use the Australian Curriculum Achievement Standards to make a summative assessment or report student achievement during 2012.

  • The Department’s Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Policy is current at this point in time.

  • For most teachers, this means that what they teach and how they teach it will remain largely unchanged in 2012.

2012 - Western Australian Context

  • The three year formal implementation period will commence in July 2012 as the total curriculum package, comprising Curriculum Content, Achievement Standards and Resources, including annotated work samples for the first phase of the Australian Curriculum, is now available.

  • ACARA has indicated that NAPLAN tests will draw from the Australian Curriculum from 2014.

  • Implementation timelines for the Year 11 and 12 courses are still being negotiated.

2012 Western Australian context: Curriculum Framework

  • Schools are required to implement the Curriculum Framework.

  • The content of the Australian Curriculum will provide students with opportunities to demonstrate the Curriculum Framework’s learning outcomes.

  • The Curriculum Framework’s principles of learning, teaching, and assessment provide advice which is relevant to the delivery of the Australian Curriculum.
