English Level 3 is nationally comparable with all Australian jurisdictions where senior secondary Australian Curriculum: English has been implemented. All elements of Australian Curriculum: English Units 3 and 4 are contained in this course.

English is a study of contemporary language, literacy, media and literature. It is designed to develop learners' analytical, creative, critical thinking and communication skills in all language modes. English develops learners as proficient, articulate communicators of English by extending and refining their language, literacy and literature skills.

It encourages learners to critically engage with a range of texts and genres from their contemporary world, including those from Australia and other cultures. Such engagement helps learners develop a sense of themselves, their local and wider world and their place in it, as well as an understanding of how that world is represented.

Through comparative study of texts learners explore representations of concepts, ideas and issues. They evaluate how attitudes and perspectives in texts shape response and interpretation, including their own. Learners extend their experience of language, exploring and analysing intertextual relationships in texts constructed in different modes, forms and genres. This equips them with knowledge of how texts are constructed and received and how meaning is created in the process.

Through close study and wide reading, viewing and listening, learners engage critically and imaginatively with contemporary non-literary and literary texts. They create their own imaginative, interpretive and analytical responses in a number of diverse mediums. They learn to speak and write fluently in a range of contexts and to create visual and multimodal texts, preparing them to adapt to future technological change and communication practices.
