NZ comparative study

The New Zealand Curriculum comparison study released  

Today we have published a study comparing the Australian Curriculum with The New Zealand Curriculum.

This follows the publication of other comparative studies in July 2018, which compared the Australian Curriculum with the curricula of British Columbia, Finland and Singapore.  

The comparative studies have been produced as part of ACARA’s research program to consider international trends and developments in curriculum design.  

Comparing the Australian Curriculum with the curricula of other countries and school systems can help inform future refinements and improvements of our curriculum, ensuring we continue to give our students the skills, knowledge and attributes they need to live and work in the 21st century.
