Personal and Social Capability


Curriculum area resources support teachers to implement the curriculum. Resources are organised by 'Planning resources', 'Teaching resources' and 'Assessment resources'.

Overview of Personal and Social Capability

The Personal and Social Capability is essential in enabling students to understand themselves and others, and manage their relationships, lives, work and learning more effectively. It is organised into two strands: Self-Awareness and Management and Social Awareness and Management.

The capability involves students learning to recognise and regulate emotions, develop empathy for others and understand relationships, establish and build a framework for positive relationships, work effectively in teams and develop leadership skills, and handle challenging situations constructively.

The Personal and Social Capability curriculum  can be viewed on the Victorian Curriculum F–10 website.

To learn about key components of the Personal and Social Capability curriculum, view the presentation Introducing Personal and Social Capability (pptx - 319.7kb).
