There is growing recognition that individuals need a wide array of skills in order to meet the needs of the modern workplace. The four Victorian Capabilities have been developed to ensure students develop these 21st century skills. These skills include being able to solve complex problems, to think critically about tasks, to effectively communicate with people from a variety of different cultures and using a variety of different techniques, to work in collaboration with others in ever-changing environments.

It is expected that the skills and knowledge defined in the capabilities will be developed, practised, deployed and demonstrated by students in and through their learning across the curriculum. (VCAA)

This workshop will enable teachers to:

  • Develop and use a learning continuum for all Victorian Capabilities:
    • Critical and Creative Thinking
    • Ethical
    • Intercultural
    • Personal and Social
  • Identify strategies and techniques to explicitly teach and assess the Victorian General Capabilities
  • Identify strategies to make the Capabilities authentic
  • Build capacity to assist other staff members to integrate the Capabilities into Curriculum planning and assessment
