English as an Additional Language (EAL) F–10 Curriculum update
A revised full consultation draft of the new English as an Additional Language (EAL) F–10 curriculum is now available.
The curriculum is available for schools and teachers to review and provide feedback. Schools can also now choose to trial implementation of the new curriculum.
Feedback on the draft EAL curriculum can be provided here. Feedback will close on
29 August 2019.
A final version of the EAL curriculum will be published on the Victorian Curriculum F–10 website in
December 2019, with full implementation of the curriculum expected to commence from
Term 1 2020.
The new EAL curriculum is intended to be used by all teachers with EAL students in their classrooms from Prep to Year 10. Resources to support the new curriculum include resources to support EAL provision across all curriculum areas, a diagnostic assessment tool and guidance on how to determine the most appropriate pathway for each EAL learner. Teachers and schools are encouraged to provide feedback on these resources as well as the curriculum itself.
