Background and Discussion Papers

The Years 9 to 12 Project Discussion Papers have been developed in consultation with our partnering organisations to stimulate thought and conversation around the different elements of the Years 9 to 12 Project.

These include papers on curriculum, assessment and teaching and learning practices, as well as the types of skills and capabilities students will need (and employers want) for the future and the way in which we deliver Vocational Education and Training (VET) and vocational learning (VL) in Tasmania.

The Discussion Papers outline local, national and international education theory and research, best practice examples, case studies and questions for education stakeholders to consider, as well as references for further reading.

Six infosheets have been developed to explain each focus area within the Years 9 to 12 Curriculum Framework:

  1. Overview
  2. Discipline-based Study
  3. Transdisciplinary Projects
  4. Professional Studies
  5. Work-based Learning
  6. Personal Futures
