Distance education resources
Stage 4-5 distance education resources developed to support students working off campus. The Distance education network offers these documents to support teachers delivering off-campus learning. They are not designed for all learning contexts and are not anticipated to address all syllabus outcomes. Curriculum experts are reviewing them and when quality-assured versions are available they will be highlighted.
While the resources support independent student study, they must be used in consultation with their subject teacher.
