Personal Learning Plan

The Personal Learning Plan (PLP) is a compulsory, 10-credit subject undertaken at Stage 1. It is designed to help students to make informed decisions about their personal development, education and training. A compulsory component of the PLP involves at least one full week of Work Experience. Students must achieve a C grade or better to complete the subject successfully and gain their SACE.

The PLP helps students to plan their personal and learning goals for the future. Developing goals for the future will engage students in activities, such as:

  • selecting subjects, courses, and other learning relevant to pathways through and beyond school
  • investigating possible career choices
  • exploring personal interests.

  • Learning Requirements
