Western Australian Curriculum and English as an Additional Language or Dialect (EAL/D)

The Pre-primary to Year 10 Western Australian curriculum provides a coherent and comprehensive set of prescribed content and achievement standards which schools will use to plan student learning programs, assess student progress and report to parents.

School Curriculum and Standards Authority (SCSA) has produced the following  EAL/D teacher resources based on the Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA) materials so as to align with the Western Australian Curriculum.
