Course Development

What’s Happening:

In response to feedback received we have extended the implementation timeline for most of Tranche 1. This will enable us to spend more time working with schools and teachers on the professional learning required to support implementation. 

We have split the tranche into Tranche 1A which consists of six Level 1 and 2 courses intended to be available for use from 2022, and Tranche 1B which is intended to be available for use from 2023.

Tranche 1A consists of six courses:

Level 1

  • Civics and Citizenship
  • Science

Level 2

  • Engineering Design
  • Enterprise at Work
  • Learning Through the Workplace
  • Transdisciplinary Science

Phase 4 Consultation for Tranche 1A courses is open until 2 July 2021.

Phase 4 twilight course development information sessions – 10 to 16 August

Years 9 to 12 Learning invite teachers to participate in face-to-face consultation sessions with Curriculum Leaders regarding the current status of course development and final phase of consultation for Tranche 1 courses prior to being submitted for accreditation. Opportunities to discuss Tranche 2 will also be included.
The face-to-face twilight sessions will be held as below:

  • Tuesday 10 August 2021 – Rosny College – 4.00 pm to 6.00 pm
  • Wednesday 11 August 2021 – Guilford Young College (Glenorchy Campus) – 4.00 pm to 6.00 pm
  • Thursday 12 August 2021 – Ulverstone Secondary College – 4.00 pm to 6.00 pm
  • Monday 16 August 2021 – Newstead College – 4.00 pm to 6.00 pm

The sessions have been scheduled later in the day to allow as many teachers as possible to participate without impacting on classes.
Participants must register for the sessions in order to comply with COVID safety measures at each site:

Scope advice for 2022:

Years 9 to 12 Learning will seek TASC to re-accredit all currently available accredited courses until at least 2022.

Tranche 1A courses are intended to be available, subject to accreditation, in 2022.

Scope advice for 2023 and beyond:

All other Tranche 1 courses will continue to be developed and are intended to be available, subject to TASC accreditation from 2023.

A new course provision summary document will be available shortly. This will outline an updated approach to the intended year by year program of course renewal and development, which aligns to the revised implementation timeframe, which supports the next iteration of the curriculum roadmaps.
