This course is designed to help learners gain an understanding of the complexities of a broad range of matters of public concern (issues) relating to the world we live in

It enables learners to develop their understanding of what defines an issue, its causes, impacts and possible resolutions. This course focuses on issues in Australia and globally; and how actions by government, communities or individuals in response to those issues can have an impact on individuals, families and communities. The course also looks at the range of positive and negative choices in response to issues, along with the range of community organisations and support available. Learners investigate and reflect on issues that may be of a personal or individual nature through to more global issues providing a broader context for investigations and contributing to the development of informed global citizens.
