Focus Area Profiles

The ACER Review of Years 9 to 12 in Tasmania (2016) recommended that the curriculum be reviewed and updated to become future-focused in order to better meet the needs of Tasmanian students.

The Years 9 to 12 Curriculum Framework (2020) provides both depth and breadth of curriculum provision options for schools, suited to their cohort of learners and their identified interests, needs and aspirations.

The Years 9 to 12 Curriculum Framework identifies five focus areas that reflect different modes of learning and support diverse pathway options for students. A one page profile of each focus area is listed below.
