IMPORTANT VELS & VCE INFORMATION FOR AUSLAN TEACHERS


From Wikipedia:

In the state of Victoria, Australia, the Victorian Essential Learning Standards (VELS) is the curriculum framework for Preparatory to Year 10 school levels, which replaced the Curriculum and Standards Framework II (CSF 2) in 2006. Students starting Year 11 normally proceed to complete the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE), but other education options are available.

The VELS is a curriculum framework providing a set of areas for teachers to teach.

The VELS has six levels, with a general expectation that each level be completed in two years of schooling, with the exception of Level 1, completed in the first year of Primary schooling, known as "Prep", as follows:

Primary School Level
Level 1 - Prep
Level 2 - Years 1 and 2
Level 3 - Years 3 and 4
Level 4 - Years 5 and 6

Secondary School Level
Level 5 - Years 7 and 8
Level 6 - Years 9 and 10

LOTE (Languages other than English, including Auslan) has two pathways:

Pathway 1  - is for students who begin learning a language in primary school and continue to study the same language to Year 10.

Pathway 2 - is for students who begin learning a language in Year 7.
