Course Frameworks

Course Frameworks are system curriculum documents for Years 11 and 12.

Course Frameworks:

  • provide the essential basis for the development and accreditation of any course within a designated subject area
  • provide a common basis for assessment and reporting of student outcomes in courses based on the framework.
  • take into account current directions in curriculum and assessment
  • enable reporting of industry standards as appropriate.

Current Course Frameworks are also available in print form from the Board Secretariat and from colleges. 

Past editions of the Course Frameworks are available from the Board Secretariat upon request. These are to be used for reference purposes only.
