The National Literacy and Numeracy Learning Progressions have been developed by ACARA in collaboration with the NSW Department of Education and are available on the NESA website. NESA, as the authority responsible for curriculum, has included a statement on their website regarding the voluntary use of the progressions to support the NSW syllabuses K-10.
The NSW syllabuses remain the focus for planning, programming, teaching, learning and assessment in all NSW schools. The progressions are designed to support the implementation of the syllabuses.
Professional learning on the progressions will be available for independent schools in 2019. Please refer to the AISNSW Professional Learning Calendar for details or contact Annelies Vanhout for further information about customised consultancy for your school.
Plan2 is a NSW Department of Education tool that collects and stores the data gathered on students’ literacy and numeracy development when using the progressions. Plan2 is hosted on the Assessing Literacy and Numeracy (ALAN) website on the DoE extranet portal.
Access to Plan2 for independent schools will cost $2 per student using PLAN 2.
For further information on accessing PLAN 2 please contact Annelies Vanhout. AIS will liaise with the NSW Department of Education to obtain access to Plan2 for individual schools. The NSW Department of Education will then invoice schools directly.
