Subject consultation

Australian Languages renewal

The SACE Board has a cycle of subject monitoring, review, and renewal to ensure that students have access to a relevant, contemporary, quality senior secondary education. As part of this cycle, in 2017 work began on the review and renewal of Stage 1 and Stage 2 Australian Languages.  The Stage 1 and Stage 2 Australian Languages - First Language subject outline was accredited in November 2018, for teaching in 2020.  The Stage 1 and Stage 2 Australian Languages - Language Revival will be presented to the Board for accreditation in August 2019. 

In addition, the Australian Languages - Additional Language subject outlines have now been drafted for:

  • Stage 1 Australian Languages - Additional Language
  • Stage 2 Australian Languages - Additional Language

It is proposed that these subjects replace the current Stage 1 and Stage 2 Australian Languages - Second Language subjects from 2020.


The renewed draft Stage 1 and Stage 2 subject outlines are now available for consultation. Feedback can be provided via the online feedback form.

The consultation drafts will be available online from:

Monday 10 June 2019 – Friday 12 July 2019
