CCAFL Framework Renewal Project: Invitation to participate
The CCAFL Framework Renewal Project is in the process of renewing the curriculum and assessment for the CCAFL Continuer studies. All CCAFL language studies in the VCE are based on the Continuer Framework. The renewal of the Framework and the language studies based on it, is a collaboration between curriculum and assessment authorities from all participating states and the Northern Territory.
Consultation period: Monday 1 March to Sunday 11 April 2021
Teachers of CCAFL Languages, VCE Languages providers, school leaders and all other stakeholders are invited to provide feedback on the draft CCAFL Framework Draft for Consultation. This is an opportunity for Victorian stakeholders to contribute to the national review of the CCAFL curriculum and external assessment. All Victorian CCAFL studies will be redeveloped according to the new Framework for implementation beginning in 2024.
The VCAA ran a webinar to outline and explain features of the proposed Framework. Stakeholders are encouraged to view the recording of this webinar (on the VCAA website) before completing the online consultation survey.
