Economics (Stage 2 in 2020)

Students learn how an economy operates, the structure of economic systems and the way in which they function. Students develop an understanding of different economic systems and institutions, and can assess the degree to which these systems and institutions help satisfy people's needs and wants. They become aware that economic decisions are not value-free and have outcomes that may be inconsistent with social, moral, and ethical values.

Students research, analyse, evaluate, and apply economic models that are expressed in graphical and/or diagrammatic form. They make forecasts about economic change and evaluate issues for individuals and groups in local, national, and global settings.

For Stage 1, see renewed Stage 1.

    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)
    Accounting
    Outdoor Education
    Design, Technology and Engineering
