In 2016, Queensland schools will continue to plan, teach, assess and report using the F–10 Australian Curriculum for English, Mathematics, Science and History, and Geography (if commenced in 2014).
The following Phase 3 Australian Curriculum F–10 learning areas are now endorsed:
- Civics and Citizenship
- Economics and Business
- Health and Physical Education
- The Arts
Schools may wish to use the Australian Curriculum for Phase 3 learning areas to guide revision and development of their teaching, learning and assessment programs.
The QCAA , and Queensland's school sectors — State Schools, Queensland Catholic Education Commission and Independent Schools Queensland — have developed advice, guidelines and resources to support schools during the transition to the Australian Curriculum.
For information on time allocations , see Advice and guidelines for the implementation of the Australian Curriculum.
Essential Learnings identify what should be taught and what is important for students to have opportunities to know, understand and be able to do.
These resources support planning within and across year levels for the The Arts key learning area. Resources to support integrated curriculum planning by year juncture are also available.
