The Victorian Curriculum F–10 - VCAA
The Civics and Citizenship Domain is now incorporated into AusVELS, the Foundation to Year 10 curriculum that provides a single, coherent and comprehensive set of prescribed content and common achievement standards. Student reporting is against AusVELS.
AusVELS incorporates the Australian Curriculum as it is progressively developed within a framework that reflects particular Victorian priorities and approaches to teaching and learning.
AusVELS has been designed to ensure that schools and teachers are not required to manage two different curriculums and reporting frameworks during the development of the Australian Curriculum.
AusVELS Civics and Citizenship Domain - contains AusVELS curriculum level descriptions, content descriptions and achievement standards for Civics and Citizenship.
Learning and teaching support
AusVELS Resources and Support - materials to support the implementation of AusVELS.
Civics and Citizenship Resources - provides teachers with specific support in the teaching of AusVELS Civics and Citizenship.
