The Victorian Essential Learning Standards provide a new approach to organising the curriculum in schools.

 

The Standards identify what is important for students to achieve at different stages of their schooling, set standards for those achievements and provide a clear basis for reporting to parents and for planning programs.

 

This curriculum approach directly addresses:

 

  • The economic and social changes associated with the development of our global, knowledge-based world and their implications for schools; and
  • The growing evidence base about how people learn and its implications for teaching that works.
