Teachers who teach in mainstream settings in all sectors are also welcome to apply. SLM programs focus largely on the NSW History syllabus but may include links to other learning areas. They also link to a range of Cross Curriculum Priorities including in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Histories and Cultures.
