Curriculum Services delivers Moderation for approximately 1300  Year 11 and 12 teachers from all sectors – Government, Catholic and Independent schools, twice each year (March and September). 

One hundred and forty-nine meetings are held in two separate sites, one northern and one southern. 

Moderation allows teachers to actively work on how to improve student learning outcomes and ensure consistency of judgements. This work enables students to be provided with the feedback required to progress their learning and teachers the feedback on what to do next to support student learning.

We appreciate the support received from schools in allowing teachers to participate in this process and also the community in allowing these valuable days to occur.
