Our Curriculum

At NG Central, we are extremely proud of our diverse and dynamic suite of programs and initiatives.


Our school provides not just educational programs, but social, welfare, cultural and enterprising services. Our teachers relate the traditional curriculum to the interests and abilities of our young people and help them make connections between their classroom learning and the world outside school.

We support our students to empower themselves, explore their unique strengths and actively contribute to the world around them.

This is achieved through a unique combination of hands-on classroom learning, quality vocational training and education and wrap-around welfare support. Throughout all aspects of our curriculum we cultivate high expectations and aspirations, where the success of any young person is not dependent on where they've come from, but where they are ready to progress to.

Record of School Achievement (ROSA) Requirements


Subjects will be reported with grades (A-E). Teachers use the General Performance Descriptors in determining the appropriate grade to award. This will be outlined in a separate booklet given out during Semester 1 of Year 10.


At NG Central, we have the ability to tailor a student’s program to their capabilities. We are registered and accredited to offer participants the core curriculum subjects and a selection of VET subjects. We offer participants the opportunity to gain a RoSA, a certificate that can be requested through the NSW Education Standards Authority and replaces the ‘School Certificate’, along with a nationally recognised certificate in their chosen VET subject.


The Record of School Achievement (RoSA) is the credential for students who leave school after Year 10 and before they receive their Higher School Certificate (HSC). It is a cumulative record of all academic achievement designed to record and credential all of a secondary school student’s academic results up until the HSC.

We also provide a Year 11 and 12 program which offers a curriculum option for students who are wanting to achieve the HSC. This education program meets the requirements of the Education Act and has NESA Developed and Endorsed content status (however it does not lead to an ATAR which is required for entrance into university).
