Here’s a Sample of Just One (of MANY!) Examples for SC1 (Use These Examples as Prompts for Your Own):

SC1. Demonstrated knowledge of the relevant curriculum, including the ability to incorporate the teaching of literacy and numeracy skills. Demonstrated experience in responding to student learning needs.

With 15 years’ experience as an Educator, I have developed a comprehensive understanding of the Victorian Curriculum F-10, and what each student should learn in primary school and up to Year 10. I regularly review the current curriculum to inform lesson plans and reporting processes. I adjust lessons and modes of delivery when required to ensure all students are provided with the most effective, targeted learning opportunities. I understand literacy and numeracy skills are vital to so many aspects of our lives, and I ensure these are embedded in all lessons and learning experiences.

As a grade 3 teacher at Sample Primary School, I was instrumental in contributing to the review, redevelopment and implementation of the school’s English and Mathematics curriculum program. I provided review and feedback of whole-school benchmarking programs used including Essential Assessment, which provided individual curriculum levels, allowing for the development of goals from the areas students needed to improve on. I also provided input into the sequencing of key learning areas across each year of schooling, as well as individual content and standards for individual units. This was an extremely successful approach, with increased clarity around both assessment and learning content within the school.

I was able to implement the program effectively. For example, teaching writing to grade 3 students, I implemented lessons around developing an information report on the Great Barrier Reef (this topic, whilst aligning with curriculum standards, was of particular interest to my class, with several students having visited). I commenced the unit by offering students samples of information reports, identifying their features and genre. I was then able to introduce and explore topics on planning, composing, publishing and editing.

Following classroom lessons, whole-school assessments were again conducted and moderated. As a cohort, my class’s results were significantly above expectations compared to other classes, and individual students showed significant growth, emphasising the effectiveness of my teaching of the Victorian curriculum…
