+ help teachers plan student WHS education programs
+ provide a checklist to help schools examine their policies, programs and practices
+ provide a framework for quality assurance against which education systems and sectors can evaluate the available materials and consider what recommendations to make to schools when the time comes for re-accreditation of courses and programs, and
+ guide the development of relevant, high quality materials.
