Western Australian Consultation – Review of the F–10 Australian Curriculum

In September 2015, Australia’s education ministers endorsed the Foundation – Year 10 (F–10) Australian Curriculum.

After consultation with teachers and other important stakeholders, Western Australia ‘adopted and adapted’ the F–10 Australian Curriculum. The Western Australian curriculum published in the Western Australian Curriculum and Assessment Outline (https://k10outline.scsa.wa.edu.au/), sets out the mandatory teaching, assessing and reporting on student achievement requirements for all Western Australian schools.

On 12 June 2020, Education Council tasked the Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA) to undertake a review of the F–10 Australian Curriculum to ensure it is still meeting the needs of students and providing clear guidance for teachers.

Commencing on 29 April 2021, ACARA will release their draft revised Foundation to Year 10 (F–10) Australian Curriculum for public consultation.

In order for Western Australian teachers and other important stakeholders to provide feedback on ACARA’s proposed F–10 Australian Curriculum, the School Curriculum and Standards Authority (the Authority) will be conducting consultation workshops throughout the month of May 2021.

The Authority looks forward to your support to ensure that the views of Western Australia are heard and communicated to ACARA.
