Australian Curriculum Connect is a project funded by the Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations (DEEWR) to assist government and non-government education authorities to implement the Australian Curriculum
The Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA) is the independent authority responsible for the development of a national curriculum, a national assessment program and a national data collection and reporting program that supports 21st century learning for all Australian students.
The QCAA and Queensland's school sectors — State Schools, Queensland Catholic Education Commission and Independent Schools Queensland — have developed advice, guidelines and resources to support schools during the transition to the Australian Curriculum.
Essential Learnings identify what should be taught and what is important for students to have opportunities to know, understand and be able to do. They are the part of the curriculum that is common across all schools, and are specified for each of the key learning areas, at four different year-level junctures (end of Years 3, 5, 7 and 9).
