General Curriculum Options Stream. CGEA Information Sheet No. 6.
Adult, Community, and Further Education Board, Melbourne (Australia).
This information sheet describes General Curriculum Options, one of four streams or subject areas offered in the Certificates in General Education for Adults (CGEA) in Australia. The first seven learning outcomes are based on seven key competencies: collecting, analyzing, and organizing information; planning and organizing activities; communicating ideas and information; working with others and in teams; using mathematical ideas and techniques; solving problems; and using technology. The eighth learning outcome is identifying, analyzing, and applying the practices of culture. Content or Underpinning Knowledge outlines key concepts pertaining to each learning outcome that may need to be introduced to students so they can achieve competence. The lists, which correspond to the eight learning outcomes, appear at the beginning of each module. The General Curriculum Options can be offered as part of the CGEA in two ways: by integrating the learning outcomes with those of other streams and through a discrete field of study. Module purposes at each of the four levels are described, and information is provided on reading the learning outcome details, including assessment criteria, assessment criteria, conditions of assessment, and assessment tasks.
