Leading Curriculum For Education State

VIC Premier

The Allan Labor Government is delivering our schools and teachers the resources they need to implement Victoria’s revised curriculum.

Minister for Education Ben Carroll today announced the release of the Victorian Curriculum F-10 Version 2.0 on a new accessible website.

Today’s release delivers on a $20 million investment to deliver a leading curriculum for schools to be taught in all Victorian classrooms by 2026.

Led by the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority (VCAA) – the Victorian Curriculum F-10 Version 2.0 delivers the next generation of students from Prep to Year 10 a knowledge-rich curriculum that will make them active, informed citizens prepared to navigate a diverse and changing world.

Version 2.0 has been developed through extensive consultation with feedback from more than 300 primary and secondary teachers. This feedback has produced a high-quality curriculum that teachers can implement confidently, including revisions that better meet the needs of Victorian students.

The new curriculum maintains our priorities and standards while strengthening students’ access to essential knowledge and skills.

It is also more teachable and manageable and delivers improved achievement standards to help teachers assess student learning more effectively.

With this revision, students will experience improved learning transitions from early years to primary school and gain the necessary knowledge and skills to follow their chosen senior secondary pathway.

6 learning areas are now available: the Arts, Technologies, Humanities, Health and Physical Education, Languages, and Science. These follow the release of Mathematics and English in 2023.

Throughout 2024 and 2025, the VCAA will support teachers and schools in becoming familiar with Version 2.0 by providing access to a targeted program of resources and professional learning opportunities.

Each sector will determine the implementation of the Victorian Curriculum F-10 Version 2.0, which is planned to commence in Term 1, 2026. For more information, visit the new curriculum website at f10.vcaa.vic.edu.au.

As stated by Minister for Education Ben Carroll

“The updated curriculum will ensure Victoria remains the Education State – giving students contemporary and relevant knowledge and skills to become informed and active citizens.”

“We’re making sure Victorian students remain the best performers in the country by delivering a school curriculum that is up to date and contemporary.”

As stated by the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority Board Chair Diane Joseph

“The Victorian Curriculum F-10 Version 2.0 is a testament to Victoria’s expert teachers and school leaders who provided valuable feedback, insight and contributions that have led to the revised curriculum.”
