Have your say in the ACSF and DLSF review

The Department of Education Skills and Employment has commissioned the Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER) to conduct a review of the Australian Core Skills Framework (ACSF) and Digital Literacy Skills Framework (DSLF). The project will catalogue and report on the VET and ACE stakeholders’ use of these frameworks and associated tools and identify potential areas for change. Broad project details can be found here.

  • How you use the Australian Core Skills Framework or the Digital Literacy Skills Framework in your work?
  • Perhaps you are more familiar with assessment tools based on the frameworks?
  • Do you have thoughts to share about what might make these frameworks or tools easier to use?

Whatever your interest, ACER review team wants to learn more about how you use these frameworks, and what (if any) changes you can suggest, for their ongoing improvement.
