Learning and assessment plans

Teachers of Stage 2 subjects use a learning and assessment plan (LAP) appropriate for their student cohort that shows their intended learning and assessment activities for a subject.


  • are required to have at least one approved LAP for each Stage 2 subject offered
  • have the option of using pre-approved or school-developed LAPs, or a combination of these two options
  • can adapt pre-approved LAPs by using the addendum to record and endorse any changes made to the plan
  • are responsible for checking that school-developed LAPs meet the subject outline specification
  • keep pre-approved and school-developed LAPs in a central location in the school.

From 2018, Stage 2 pre-approved and Stage 2 school-developed learning and assessment plans are not submitted to the SACE Board for approval.
