Mandatory curriculum requirements for students undertaking courses based on Life Skills outcomes and content

Students are able to satisfy the mandatory curriculum requirements for the Record of School Achievement in individual key learning areas (KLAs) by completing courses based on Life Skills outcomes and content.

Students can meet the mandatory curriculum requirements by undertaking regular outcomes and content in some Years 7–10 Board Developed and/or Board Endorsed Courses and Life Skills outcomes and content in other courses of study.

To be eligible for the Record of School Achievement, students must meet the mandatory curriculum requirements in each KLA. The KLAs are English; Mathematics; Science; Human Society and Its Environment; Technological and Applied Studies; Creative Arts; Personal Development, Health and Physical Education; Languages other than English.

Time allocation for courses

In developing programs for those students with special education needs who undertake courses based on Life Skills outcomes and content from one or more of the Years 7–10 syllabuses, it may be necessary to vary the time allocated for study of the course(s). When considering whether a variation is needed, the principal should ensure that appropriate time is allocated across the KLAs.
