The Review of Senior Secondary Schooling led by Peter Shergold was released last week by Minister Tehan.
The review recommends major changes to support senior secondary students to choose the best pathways into work, further education or training. Bold reforms are suggested to better prepare young people “for their future roles in the workforce and as active and engaged members of civil society” and to continue lifelong learning. Recommendations include the reduced role of the ATAR, development of a Learner Profile identifying skills, knowledge and experience, an Education Passport to better communicate qualifications, learning and experience, and quality career guidance,
It as great to see the Urban School featured as a case study of innovative education in this report.
