Scheduled learning activities - online

It is expected that students will engage weekly with online materials for a minimum of

This unit will enable students to develop an overview of the range of curriculum documents and programs relevant to a broad range of later year's settings, including VCE, VCAL, VET, IB and CGEA. Students examine how curriculum documents are applied in their specialist teaching areas and will develop the knowledge and skills required to prepare learning activities meeting the curriculum and assessment requirements. 

The unit introduces students to the role of teachers and specialist subjects in supporting later years’ decision making in regard to further education, training and employment. Students will develop an understanding of the range of learning needs encountered among later year's students and of strategies to assist their learning. Students compare and contrast the similarities and differences that exist within the different later years’ curricula. Students consider various assessment strategies to assess student learning and apply knowledge of feedback literacy (including providing timely and appropriate feedback to students about their learning) and moderation processes to make consistent judgements about student learning. Finally, the unit will enable students to develop safe, creative and productive learning environments in the later years to sustain engagement across the diverse range of students they may encounter, using all of the resources that are available including ICT, networks and partnerships.
