Courses renewed – continuity of provision:

All senior secondary courses that do not have an accredited replacement course and were expiring in 2023 and 2024 have been renewed.  84 courses are renewed without amendment and two courses are renewed with minor amendment. This ensures continuity of provision and supports schools to plan their curriculum offerings for the next two years.

See the list of Courses with accreditation renewed for 2024 and 2025 delivery.
