Year View Curriculum
The Victorian Essential Learning Standards (VELS) describe what is essential for students to achieve from Years Prep - 10 in Victorian schools. They provide a whole school curriculum planning framework that sets out learning standards for schools to use to plan their teaching and learning programs. VELS provides a clear picture of the sequence of development a student should progress through at school. It identifies three core strands:
Physical, personal and social learning
Discipline - based learning
Each strand has a number of domains which describe the essential knowledge, skills and behaviours that students need to prepare for further education, work and life.
