The Australian Curriculum sets consistent national standards to improve learning outcomes for all young Australians. It sets out, through content descriptions and achievement standards, what students should be taught and achieve, as they progress through school. It is the base for future learning, growth and active participation in the Australian community. ACARA develops the Australian Curriculum through rigorous, consultative national processes.
In 2014, Foundation to Year 10 Australian Curriculum is being implemented in all states and territories of Australia. It includes learning areas, general capabilities and cross-curriculum priorities that together support 21st century learning.
