This course is for any student as no background knowledge is assumed. However, it MUST be noted that students cannot use Community Studies results to calculate their Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank (ATAR).
You will take an active role in planning, carrying out and documenting your own community activity using the community as a resource. You and your teacher will work together to develop a program according to your interest. Your background, skills, experiences and community interests are incorporated into this program, containing both research and practical tasks.
There are six areas of study available:
For a 20-credit subject, you will be assessed in 4 areas. The nature, scope, and depth of the community activity should be reflected in the time allocated to a 20-credit subject (at least 120 hours).

Assessment Type 2: Reflection 30% external assessment
