What is an Asia-focused Work Studies curriculum?
The Australian Curriculum for Work Studies provides opportunities for students to learn explicit content about Asia,
[It] enables students to explore and appreciate the diversity of ethnic backgrounds, cultures and traditions within the countries of the Asia region, including Australia. In this curriculum, students develop communication and interpersonal skills that reflect intercultural understanding, building awareness of and respect for the diverse range of beliefs and customs that are important to the peoples of Asia.
Students are provided with opportunities to explore the concept of the 21st century as the Asian century and examine the implications for workplaces in Australia and the importance of Asia-relevant skills to 21st century workforce. They investigate the way work culture and patterns are informed by and impact on the cultures and beliefs of the peoples of Asia.
