P-10 Alternative Curriculum Recognition Process
Juanita Healy (08) 9273 6375
The Western Australian Curriculum and Assessment Outline sets out the knowledge, understanding, skills, values and attitudes that students are expected to acquire and guidelines for the assessment and reporting of student achievement.
Application by schools and education providers for recognition of an alternative curriculum (and/or reporting on student achievement) that aligns with the Western Australian Curriculum and Assessment Outline should be made to the Authority, using the following templates:
- Nationally Recognised Curriculum Template
- Notice of Intention Template – information to present for a notice of intention
- Submission Template – information to present for a submission for assessment.
These procedures and templates, accessible via the Western Australian Curriculum and Assessment Outline (at http://k10outline.scsa.wa.edu.au/Curriculum_k-10/Western_Australian_Curriculum/Alt_Curriculum_Recognition), provide organisations with a framework of questions to be addressed with supportive documentation so that the Recognition Review Panel, reporting to the Authority, can make this assessment.
The timeline setting out key dates for the 2014 Alternative Curriculum Recognition process, along with detailed information about the process, is also available in the Outline.
