Students use a range of tools, materials and techniques in the design process and technological experiences through theory and practical lessons.

Kindergarten to Year 6 students study technology through the Science K–10 (incorporating science and technology K–6) Syllabus.

Technological and applied studies (TAS) is mandatory for all students in Stage 4 through the Technology (Mandatory) Years 7–8 Syllabus. Students then have an opportunity to select from a range of elective TAS subjects in Stages 5 and 6.

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 secondary school through a range of syllabuses addressing particular technologies and aspects of design.
