Queensland schools continue to plan, teach, assess and report using the F–10 Australian Curriculum.
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.
The resources on this page support planning within and across year levels for the Studies of Society and Environment (SOSE) key learning area. Resources to support integrated curriculum planning by year juncture are also available.
