Physical, Personal and Social Learning
Those aspects of the curriculum that are defined in the Australian Curriculum as the General Capabilities are a critical component of the school curriculum. Many of these aspects of learning are already included in the VELS, located in both the Physical, Personal and Social Learning strand and the Interdisciplinary Learning strand. The development of learning continua for the General Capabilities is still being undertaken by ACARA. Until that work has been completed and a process of validation undertaken, AusVELS will continue to use the current Physical, Personal and Social Learning and Interdisciplinary Learning strands. As a result, the “filtering” mechanism that is available on the Australian Curriculum website will not be included in the AusVELS website.
