This document is a youth curriculum resource designed to accommodate learners in Australia's Certificates in General Education (CGEA) program. The document begins by discussing the following topics: the curriculum framework; the curriculum's content and its relationship to the CGEA program's numeracy learning outcomes and criteria; successful teaching strategies; and use of the module outcomes grids. The remainder of the document consists of four learning modules (two 120-hour and two 80-hour modules). Each module begins with the following elements: a module description; an assessment strategy; conditions and methods of assessment; guidelines for delivering the module; and learning outcomes and assessment criteria. Each unit contains the following items: a statement of purpose; educational activities; and learning, recognition, and pathway outcomes. An outcomes grid concludes each module. The module and unit topics are as follows: (1) life skills (health and development; recreation and leisure; independent living skills; legal issues); (2) work and personal skills (skills identification and career planning; job search skills; self-employment opportunities; basic computer skills; issues affecting youth); (3) expressive skills (confidence building; seeing a performance; developing a play script; presenting a dramatic performance); and (4) creative skills (basic art and craft principles; traditional and cultural art; working with fabric; contemporary art).
