Review of Languages in the Curriculum

Review of Languages in the curriculum

The ACT Board of Senior Secondary Studies (BSSS) is conducting a review of languages in the curriculum in 2016.

The BSSS has identified the need to review languages in the curriculum to ensure that our system continues to meet student and stakeholder needs in a changing environment.

The BSSS has identified the following areas for review:

a) number and level of language courses

b) eligibility criteria for languages (click here for BSSS eligibility criteria for languages)

c) assessment in languages (click here for Language framework).

The BSSS invites colleges to construct a college position on each area of review. The college position on each area of review will inform the committee’s recommendations to the Board. Please convey your college position using the survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/BSSSReviewOfLanguages. The period for lodging a college position on the areas for review will conclude on Friday 29 July.
