Chronologies of Secondary School Curriculum Policy

Mapping Curriculum Developments in Australia

In order to map curriculum developments across Australia, we have compiled brief chronologies for each state and territory as well as the national context. Rather than a focus on subject areas, these chronologies document the publication of major reports and the announcement or implementation of new policies, as well as other significant events, such as major reforms in senior secondary accreditation and the establishment of curriculum authorities. Click on the links above to access the lists we have begun building to get a sense of curriculum change across Australia. These are preliminary lists and we encourage you to provide feedback on the composition of these chronologies, including suggestions for additions and amendments.
