Coding of Australian Curriculum Content

Australian curriculum content descriptions included in the syllabus are identified by an Australian curriculum code which appears in brackets at the end of each content description, for example:

The nature of the sources for art and architecture (ACHAH120)

This image shows what each digit in the ACARA code represents.

Where a number of content descriptions are jointly represented, all description codes are included, eg (ACHAH120, ACHAH121, ACHAH123).
