  • Global education and the NSW K–12 syllabuses

    The Board of Studies, Teaching and Educational Standards (BOSTES) has recognised that to live and work successfully in the diverse 21st century world, students need to be equipped with knowledge and understanding, skills and processes, values and attitudes that help them to successfully navigate such diversity. In order to achieve this, BOSTES has included the Australian curriculum cross curriculum priorities and general capabilities, and has identified additional, essential content to be integrated into all Key Learning Areas.

    In NSW this is called Learning across the curriculum. The five global education learning emphases complement the BOSTES Learning across the curriculum and together work toward the goal of active and informed citizenship for all students.
