AusVELS provides a single curriculum for levels F-10 that incorporates the Australian Curriculum as it is progressively developed within a framework that reflects particular Victorian priorities and approaches to teaching and learning.
The Shape of the Australian Curriculum: Health and Physical Education provides broad direction on the purpose, structure and organisation of the Health and Physical Education curriculum. Released August 2012.
VELS is no longer the current curriculum in use. For comparative purposes this site provides access to the former Curriculum Standards document outlining Standards for Levels 1 - 6, including the Movement and physical activity Dimension (from Level 1) and Health knowledge and promotion Dimension (from Level 3).
This site contains links to H&PE-related learning and teaching support materials such as websites, publications, assessment examples, professional learning support and links to current research in the area of H&PE education.
The Victorian Curriculum F–10 incorporates the Australian Curriculum and reflects Victorian priorities and standards. The Level 7 and 8 curriculum expands students’ knowledge, understanding and skills to help them achieve successful outcomes in classroom, leisure, social, movement and online situations. Students learn how to take positive action to enhance their own and others’ health, safety and wellbeing. They do this as they examine the nature of their relationships and other factors that influence people’s beliefs, attitudes, opportunities, decisions, behaviours and actions. Students demonstrate a range of help-seeking strategies that support them to access and evaluate health and physical activity information and services.
