Work is currently underway to develop the Victorian Curriculum F-10: English as an Additional Language (EAL).
The process for developing the curriculum has included exploring research, approaches undertaken by other jurisdictions, and findings from the DET TEAL project. There has been a range of opportunities for teachers and other interested stakeholders to provide feedback on draft materials, including focus groups and online consultations. Teachers and academics have also be involved in a range of benchmarking exercises.
The curriculum needs to be approved by the VCAA Board prior to publication. It is envisaged that the new curriculum will be released in Term 2, 2018.
