Review of the Australian Curriculum

The Australian Curriculum is changing…
Schools and teachers want a less crowded and more helpful curriculum – with time to focus on essential content and depth of learning! ACARA is now seeking your feedback!
On 12 June 2020, education ministers agreed that it was timely to review the Foundation – Year 10 Australian Curriculum, which had been in place since 2015. The terms of reference for the Review of the Australian Curriculum and other documents, videos and infographics can be found on the ’Curriculum review’ page on the ACARA website.
