"There is much that is similar in the Australian Curriculum for History(AC History) and VELS.

Both curricula have a similar sequence for knowledge and understanding, with personal, local, state and Australian history being the focus for the primary years; Ancient and Medieval history for Years 7 and 8 and; Australian and global history in Years 9 and 10.
