Asia Education Foundation (AEF) works with the Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA) to support the development of the Australian Curriculum, in particular:

  • the Asia and Australia's engagement with Asia cross-curriculum priority
  • the Intercultural understanding general capability.

AEF is represented on ACARA's General Capabilities Advisory Group, the Cross-curriculum Priorities Advisory Group and cross-curriculum priorities working groups within learning areas/subjects.

AEF provides responses to Australian Curriculum drafts papers, incorporating input from AEF stakeholders and relevant experts.

Effective engagement in the region calls for leveraging and investing in the work of all of our Asia-engaged institutions and individuals who can access networks or communities beyond the government’s reach.

Re-instating Asia capability within the Australian Education system so every child has the opportunity to develop nAsia capability is part of this effort.
