Stage 2 | Subject outline | Capabilities (unique)


Underpinning the design of Integrated Learning is an emphasis on students making links between their learning and their capabilities. In this way, the capabilities are central to Integrated Learning and are reflected in the assessment requirements and performance standards.

Students develop, extend, and apply capabilities relevant to the program focus through their learning and assessment. 

The Integrated Learning program does not need to relate to one specific capability:

  • students may individually select a capability to focus their learning on; for example, students in the same class may individually select different capabilities to develop, extend, and apply, or
  • teachers may design the entire Integrated Learning program to focus on the development of one or more specific capabilities; for example, students in the same class undertake all assessments with a focus on the same capabilities, or
  • teachers may design each assessment within the Integrated Learning program with a different capability as its focus.

The capabilities connect student learning within and across subjects in a range of contexts. 

The SACE identifies seven capabilities.
