NESA Draft Commerce Syllabus

The current Commerce syllabus was last revised in 2003. The NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) has released a draft Commerce syllabus.

>> The draft NESA Commerce syllabus can be found here
>> The “Commerce Years 7-10 draft syllabus summary of changes” can be found here

Have your say on the draft Commerce syllabus by completing a survey, attending a consultation meeting, and/or submitting a written response to the project manager. Consultation will be open from 23 July 2018 to 2 September 2018.

>> More information can be found here

Economics and Business Educators NSW will be making a submission about the draft Commerce syllabus and members are encouraged to contribute to the submission by sending their comments about the draft Commerce syllabus to admin@ebe.nsw.edu.au.

Some questions to consider:

  • What are the strengths of the syllabus?
  • What are the challenges of the syllabus?
  • Is there enough balance between economics, business, law, consumer and financial literacy and  civics and citizenship subject matter?
  • Considering the Commerce syllabus was last revised in 2003, to what extent is the current syllabus relevant to today's changing commercial environment and contemporary teaching and learning ?
  • What do you think about the content from the Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA) Australian Curriculum: Economics and Business and the ACARA Australian Curriculum:Civics and Citizenship to develop the draft Commerce syllabus?

EBE NSW made a submission to NESA when the review of the Commerce syllabus was   
announced in 2017.

The Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) also made a submission during this period – read their submission here.
