Subject consultation

Economics 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 Economics.

From this work, two subject outlines have been drafted for:

  • Stage 1 Economics
  • Stage 2 Economics

It is proposed that these subjects replace the current Stage 1 and Stage 2 Economics.

Consultation

The renewed draft Stage 1 and Stage 2 subject outlines are now available for consultation. These drafts are in one document, which can be downloaded. Feedback can be provided via the online feedback form.

The consultation drafts will be available online from:
