Key capabilities help children and young people be comfortable and confident in who they are and give them the tools to thrive throughout their lives – from the early years, through schooling, and beyond.
It invites children and young people to reflect on and show evidence of their capabilities by engaging in and drawing upon a variety of experiences both within and outside of school, and through reflection on these experiences.
Both adults and peers can support individual students by helping them think about their capabilities, suggesting ways they can grow in their capabilities and helping them think about times they have been observed in using their capabilities.
The Key Capabilities does not replace the SACE Capabilities - but instead provides a resource for young people as they develop and evidence their growth of their capabilities.
The Key Capabilities Continua supports young people to understand capabilities and how they can be nuanced within the SACE subjects and provides language that students can use to show the development of their capabilities.
