Participating schools in 2022 will have the responsibility to consider the curriculum content that will be covered in the moderation task to plan and sequence their teaching and learning accordingly. This will ensure that the relevant prior learning has taken place before the moderation task is administered.

Online registration for participation in the moderation and/or seminars will be open to schools in February 2022.
