Strategic plan

Passport to Thrive 
A qualification for a changing world 


Over the past three years, working together with schools, the SACE Board has been testing different approaches to teaching, learning and assessment, and discovered the most impactful strategies from their experience on the ground. 

What emerged was the value of capabilities, students’ active role in their own learning, and how they showcase what they know and can do. 

These strategies enable us to get to the heart of what we are collectively trying to achieve for every student. 

The Thriving Learner 

Every learner develops the capability to: 

Open doors: find opportunities 
By pursuing ideas and creating new paths, getting things done and setting the pace. 

Stretch minds: through global curiosity 
By knowing more than facts and figures, pausing to think and asking why. 

Strengthen ownership: grasp responsibilities 
By identifying strengths and opportunities and embracing failure as a first attempt in learning. 

Embrace perspectives: honour difference 
By growing awareness of different actions and recognising the impact they may have. 

Share success: with communities 
By forming connections with people and teams who have different ways of knowing and being.
