The Australian Curriculum: Work Studies, provides Years 9 and 10 students with an opportunity to look at key work-related issues facing young people today and into the future. They investigate the skills and personal qualities associated with a range of occupations and explain the importance of teamwork and collaboration. They identify the types and purposes of communication in workplaces, including social media. Students research and analyse information, organise teams, and communicate effectively using appropriate types of communications within specific contexts. They identify possible tensions arising in work-related contexts and understand the approaches to resolve conflicts and tensions.
