The format of the Curriculum Planning Guide for these strands and unit has also been revised, as per the VCAL Literacy and Numeracy Skills Strand, and is now divided into:

- an Advice for Teachers document, including VCAL policies, underpinning skills and knowledge, and related support materials, such as examples of assessment tasks and integrated activities for all outcomes.
Your feedback, via online consultation questionnaires provided on the above web pages, is sought on only the curriculum documents. Each strand and unit has a summary of changes that highlights the differences between the current and the proposed documents.
