Application for enrolment into Foundation units (for students seeking exemption from eligibility requirements)

School principals are able to seek enrolment permission from the School Curriculum and Standards Authority (the Authority) for students who fall outside the Eligibility for Foundation courses enrolment criteria as outlined in the WACE Manual 2023 Section 1.8.

Applications for enrolment into Foundation units will be considered where:

  1. a current Western Australian student has no Online Literacy and Numeracy Assessment (OLNA) data and/or relevant Year 9 National Assessment Program – Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) data (Form A)
  2. a student who has recently arrived from interstate or overseas and has no OLNA data or relevant Year 9 NAPLAN data (Form B)
  3. a Year 11 Foundation course student at the end of Semester 1 has met the relevant OLNA literacy and/or numeracy requirements, but changing the student enrolment to a General course in Semester 2 will not be educationally sound or beneficial for the student. (Form C)

The application form should be received by the Authority by the following due dates:

  • Thursday, 16 February 2023 – new enrolments only, in school year 2023
  • Thursday, 15 June 2023 (Semester 1) – after online results from OLNA Term 1 Window
  • Thursday, 15 February 2024 – new enrolments only in school year 2024
  • Case-by-case basis – for recently arrived interstate and overseas students.

Note: one application per student. No bulk applications accepted.
