In 2024, implementation commences in schools, with:

Support for Spanish K–10 Syllabus (2018)

The Spanish K–10 Syllabus (2018) was developed using the Languages K–10 Framework. As all K–10 language syllabuses (2017 and later) are underpinned by this framework, teachers should view resources across all languages to access a broader range of sample scope and sequences, unit starters and assessment tasks.

For advice on how to develop your own programming documents, visit Planning, programming and assessing languages 7–10.

Modify the documents to suit your context, including the needs of your students.
