School Developed Board Endorsed Courses
Last Updated: 2 April 2019
School Developed Courses
A School Developed Board Endorsed Course is designed by an individual school or group of schools to meet the local needs of a group of students. These courses are endorsed by NESA Officers in relevant key learning areas.
School Developed Board Endorsed Courses should explore areas of the curriculum not specifically addressed by a NESA course. NESA does not usually endorse a course that substantially duplicates an existing Board Developed or Content Endorsed course. Where there is duplication, a decision is made as to whether an exclusion will apply.
NESA does not endorse proposals for courses in the KLAs of English, Mathematics and Science.
Proposed courses must be a minimum of 100 hours indicative time. School Developed Board Endorsed Courses studied in Stage 5 may be credentialled as 100-hour or 200-hour courses on the Record of School Achievement.
See School Developed Board Endorsed Courses – Guidelines for Course Proposals for further information.
School Developed Board Endorsed Courses are endorsed for a maximum period of four years. A new course proposal must be submitted before the endorsement period of a course expires.
Group proposal for a School Developed Board Endorsed Course
Groups of schools or campuses of a multi-site school or college can prepare a group proposal for a School Developed Board Endorsed Course. These submissions should be made under the leadership of a single school, a group of schools or a school system.
