Stage 1 of the SACE usually begins in Year 10, with students studying the Personal Learning Plan (PLP), and continues through Year 11. The PLP is a compulsory Stage 1 SACE subject worth 10 credits. Students must achieve a C grade or better.
The PLP is designed to help students make informed decisions about their personal development, learning, education and future study and/or career pathways. Students develop knowledge and skills so that they can plan their SACE learning program.

Students will also take part in a Work Experience placement for one week during Term 2.
