Technological and applied studies (TAS) is mandatory for all students in Year 7 and 8. Students can also select from a range of elective TAS subjects.
In TAS, students use a range of tools, materials and techniques in the design process and technological experiences through theory and practical lessons. As well as the mandatory study of technology, students can select from a range of elective TAS subjects.
The continuum of technology learning is:
based on students becoming increasingly sophisticated in their ability to design and produce solutions for authentic needs and opportunities
an option for student specialisation in high school through a range of syllabuses addressing particular technologies and aspects of design.
