Subject renewal (implementation)

Nutrition Subject renewal – implementation

To successfully teach Stage 1 and Stage 2 Nutrition as a renewed subject in 2021, we are supporting you and your school with a suite of implementation activities.

Renewed Stage 1 Nutrition is a 10-credit subject or a 20-credit subject. Renewed Stage 2 Nutrition is a 20-credit subject. Both Stage 1 and Stage 2 consist of the following interrelated concepts:

  • Nutrition literacy and numeracy
  • Principles of nutrition, physiology and health
  • Health promotion and emerging trends
  • Sustainable food systems
  • Nutrition and technology

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 and Stage 2 Nutrition at your school in 2021.
