Other learning areas still being developed in the Australian Curriculum will continue to be taught from the ACT Curriculum Framework Every Chance To Learn until the Australian Curriculum for these learning areas is progressively completed.
School curriculum planning and documentation continues to describe scope and sequencing, content detail and resourcing. The Australian Curriculum will provide guidance on achievement standards. Pedagogy, assessment and reporting remain the responsibility of the classroom teacher, school faculty or team and individual school.
