Subject renewal (Stage 1 implementation)

Subject renewal – implementation (Stage 1 in 2020)

To successfully teach Stage 1 Dance as a renewed subject in 2020, we are supporting you and your school with a suite of implementation activities. Renewed Stage 2 Dance will be taught for the first time in 2021.

To learn why we renew subjects, see Subject renewal and implementation.

Pathway to successful implementation

Implementation activities will be delivered through online PLATO courses and in-person workshops. To gain maximum benefit, it is recommended that you complete the online course before attending any workshops.

This flowchart is designed to guide you through activities used to successfully implement Stage 1 Dance at your school in 2020.
