Physical, Personal and Social Learning
AusVELS is the Foundation to Year 10 curriculum that provides a single, coherent and comprehensive set of prescribed content and common achievement standards, which schools use to plan student learning programs, assess student progress and report to parents.
AusVELS incorporates the Australian Curriculum F–10 for English, Mathematics, History and Science within the curriculum framework first developed for the Victorian Essential Learning Standards (VELS). AusVELS uses an eleven level structure to reflect the design of the new Australian Curriculum whilst retaining Victorian priorities and approaches to teaching and learning.
‘Towards Foundation Level AusVELS’ are curriculum materials for students with disabilities. English, Mathematics, Science and History, Levels A to D (students with disabilities) have been integrated directly into the AusVELS curriculum. The remaining ‘Towards Foundation Level AusVELS’ curriculum materials are available on the AusVELS website, under each domain’s ‘Student Diversity’ section.
Details of changes made to the AusVELS curriculum can be viewed on the curriculum version page.
The VCAA F–10 website provides curriculum planning, teaching and assessment resources to support the transition to the Australian Curriculum in Victoria (AusVELS).
The VCAA F–10 website includes F–10 Curriculum planning and reporting guidelines and links to the AusVELS Curriculum Planning Resource, which offers school leadership a range of resources to support planning and documenting a comprehensive school-wide curriculum.
