The stated purpose of the Curriculum Council is that it provides for the development and implementation of a "Curriculum Framework" for schooling which, taking account of the needs of students, sets out the knowledge, understandings, skills, values and attitudes that students are expected to acquire; provides for the development and accreditation of courses of study for post-compulsory schooling; and provides for the assessment and certification of student achievement.

* an encompassing view of the Curriculum (K-12);
* a recognition of the significance of learning outcomes;
* fair and explicit standards;
* inclusivity;
* an agreed set of values;
* consultative and transparent decision making processes;
