Structure of the curriculum


The overall structure of the curriculum is consistent across learning areas and includes the following elements:

  • A rationale that explains the place and purpose of the learning area in the school curriculum
  • Aims that identify the major learning that students will be able to demonstrate as a result of learning from the curriculum
  • An organisation overview that details how the curriculum in the learning area will be organised
  • Content descriptions that specify what teachers are expected to teach
  • Achievement standards that describe the quality of learning typically expected of students
  • General capabilities that describe a set of skills, behaviours and dispositions that apply across subject-based content
  • Cross-curriculum priorities that ensure the Victorian Curriculum is relevant to the lives of students and addresses the contemporary issues they face.
