Curriculum - Links to QCAA and ACARA

Economics in Queensland is delivered by teachers using the 2019 Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority Economics Syllabus. This is available on the QCAA website in the school portal and also available at: https://www.qcaa.qld.edu.au/downloads/portal/syllabuses/snr_economics_19_syll.pdf

The QCAA has an education officer who is responsible for the administration of Economics as a subject in Queensland.

Also, there is a small, but growing number of schools who deliver Economics through the International Baccalaureate Program. Details of Economics can be found at: https://www.ibo.org/programmes/diploma-programme/curriculum/individuals-and-societies/economics/

Currently, the Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA) has developed Economics and Business within the Australian Curriculum for Years 5-9. This can be found at: https://www.qcaa.qld.edu.au/p-10/qld-curriculum/yrs-1-9-sose
