Western Australian Certificate of Education (WACE) is awarded to senior secondary school students who satisfy its requirements. It is a senior secondary certificate recognized nationally in the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF).
The SCSA has set a minimum standard for students in Year 12 for literacy and numeracy based on the Australian Core Skills Framework Level 3. This is a standard regarded as essential for individuals to meet the demands of everyday work and life in a knowledge-based economy. It helps students develop transferable skills, such as critical and creative thinking, personal and social capabilities, and intercultural understandings.
These skills are integral to enable students to navigate an increasingly interconnected world, including embarking upon further education, training, and work.
The subjects areas of the program are developed around seven essential skills to create confident, dynamic, creative and knowledgeable generations of students. WASS students become independent individuals who are fully equipped with the skills necessary to contribute to society. They become capable of communicating with and respecting the cultures of the nations, to work towards the good common interests and to be responsible members of the community.
