Syllabi and curriculum documents

  • The Australian Curriculum provides access to most syllabi currently in use by Australian schools from foundation years to senior secondary.
  • The Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority provides resources to support the Queensland Curriculum where the Australian Curriculum is not yet available. Past curriculum documents are still available and continue to be a valuable resource.
