Curriculum area-specific resources have been developed to support teachers implementing the curriculum, organised by 'Help me plan', 'Help me find a teaching resource' and 'Help me assess'.
For F–10 curriculum area advice to support remote learning, see Curriculum advice for remote and flexible learning for this curriculum area.
Overview of Economics and Business
The Economics and Business curriculum explores the ways in which individuals, families, the community, workers, businesses and governments make decisions in relation to the allocation of resources. It enables students to understand the process of economic and business decision-making at the personal, local, national, regional and global levels and the effects of these decisions on themselves and others, now and in the future. Students learn to appreciate the interdependence of decisions made and develop the knowledge, understanding and skills that will inform and encourage them to participate in, and contribute to, the economy.
The Economics and Business curriculum can be viewed on the Victorian Curriculum F–10 website
