Students learn about the changing nature of work, industrial relations, legislation, safe and sustainable workplace practices, and local, national, and global issues in an industry and workplace context. Students can undertake vocational education and training (VET), as provided under the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF), and develop and reflect on their capabilities, interests, and aspirations.
Stage 2 Workplace Practices can be studied as a 10-credit subject or a 20-credit subject.
Workplace Practices A (10-credits) and/or Workplace Practices B (10 credits), study two or more negotiated topics in each subject;
Workplace Practices (20-credits), study the three or more topics from the list below:
Students demonstrate evidence of their learning through the following assessment types:
The Investigation may be either a practical investigation or an issues investigation. The investigation should be up to a maximum of 1000 words for a 10-credit subject, or 2000 words for a 20-credit subject, if in written form, or the equivalent in other forms.
The investigation is double graded, firstly by the student’s teacher and secondly by an external assessor appointed by the SACE Board. The teacher and the external assessor make a decision about the quality of the investigation with reference to the performance standards.
The Workplace Practices Subject Outline includes performance standards, which describe five levels of achievement that are reported with the grades A to E at the student’s completion of the subject.
The school-based assessments and the external assessment will be graded with reference to the performance standards.
