The following timetables are examples of how schools and individual classes might implement a discipline-based, integrated, extended or combination program. There might be:
- a common timetable throughout the school
- a specific timetable for a cohort of students such as Year 7 or 9
- an individual classroom timetable incorporating specialist times.
Primary school individual class timetable incorporating combination of programs
This example shows the combination of an integrated and discipline/subject–based program. The school has specialists to assist with the delivery of Art, Physical Education, LOTE and Performing Arts programs and uses a rotation within the level to ensure Science and ICT skills are being taught. The third rotation activity involved students being engaged in Philosophy. Each term, the activities are reviewed and one, two or all three are replaced. For example an extra session for performing arts might be scheduled to coincide with a focus on preparing for the school concert.

Secondary school timetable incorporating an integrated program
This example shows a cohort of Year 7 students based in a home group with a reduced number of contact teachers. For instance one teacher is responsible for teaching English and Humanities and another is responsible for teaching Mathematics and Science. The two teachers work closely to develop integrated units of work that may include one or both of their discipline subjects.
