Personal Learning Plan (PLP)


The Personal Learning Plan is a compulsory subject, which most students undertake in Year 10. It is worth 10 credits, and you need to achieve a C grade or higher to gain the SACE.

The Personal Learning Plan gives students the chance to identify plans and goals for the future, helping them make informed decisions about their personal development, education and training.

If students already have a career in mind, the Personal Learning Plan provides a chance for them to explore university, TAFE, and apprenticeship or traineeship courses or pathways.

For students who do not know what they want to do yet, the subject will give them an idea of what careers might interest them and the kinds of subjects they can study to maximise your choices in the future.

The Personal Learning Plan is an introduction to the five SACE capabilities - Citizenship, Communication, Learning, Professional Development and Work. They'll learn what capabilities they need for their future, as well as how to develop and improve them.

Students will also come out of the subject with a plan to get them where they want to go. This plan isn't set in stone - the idea is to get them thinking about what their options are and what path they might like to take.
