Community Learning in the SACE

Students are able to earn SACE credits for learning undertaken in the community. Information on community-based courses can be found at: www.sace.sa.edu.au/subjects/recognised-learning/community-learning

Students can also count recognition for learning gained through informal community activities such as coaching a sporting team, being the primary carer of a family member, or leading an environmental project in the community. Students will need to provide evidence of their learning for assessment so that the SACE Board can recognise these other kinds of community learning. You can get recognition for community learning in two ways:

  • Community-Developed Programs
    If you have a current award or certificate of a community-developed program, e.g. Royal Life Saving Society, Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, Choices for Indigenous Secondary Students Program.
  • Personal learning Programs
    If you are involved in personal learning, such as taking care of a family member, supporting a refugee family or volunteering for a community project.

Community learning can occur at anytime and at any place for example: at the same time as your SACE studies, after school, at home, on weekends, prior to commencing your SACE. These subjects do not count towards an ATAR (Australian Tertiary Admissions Ranking).

More information about Community Learning is available from the KHS Flexible Pathways Co-ordinator, SACE Co-ordinator or from the website.
