    This year we’re starting to roll out new, streamlined subject areas on the SACE website.

    This means we're making subjects easier to navigate, while providing subject-specific information that’s relevant to each task you will perform as a teacher, at the time you need it.

    Please take a moment to familiarise yourself with the changes by watching the video.

    These renewed subjects have already had their subject areas streamlined:
    Dance (Stage 1)
    Drama (Stage 1)
    Economic (Stage 1)
