Catering for diversity
Australia is moving toward a national framework for schooling, with the aim of raising education standards and achieving nationally consistent curriculum, assessment and reporting. The Australian Curriculum is committed to include students with multiple, diverse and changing needs that are shaped by individual learning histories and abilities as well as personal, cultural and language backgrounds and socio-economic factors. For more information refer to Catering for diversity.
Special educational needs
The QCAA is committed to equity in education. The needs of students with specific educational needs must be considered in a proactive way – to design inclusive learning and assessment programs, and to provide opportunities for alternative assessment arrangements. For more information refer to Catering for diversity.
Queensland Certificate of Individual Achievement
The Queensland Certificate of Individual Achievement recognises the achievements of students who undertake individualised learning programs. To be eligible, students must have impairments or difficulties in learning that are not primarily due to socioeconomic, cultural or linguistic factors.
