The Australian Curriculum describes a learning entitlement for each Australian student. It sets out what young people should
be taught (through the specification of curriculum content from learning areas, general capabilities and cross-curriculum
priorities) and an expectation of the quality of their learning (depth of understanding and sophistication of skills described
through achievement standards).
The Department of Education is supporting the staged implementation of the Australian Curriculum through the provision of
online information, teaching and learning resources and professional support.
