We’re delighted to be delivering a program where teachers get to work together to learn about and implement strategies for student voice and agency. ‘Student empowerment – professional learning for teachers' is launching with an online short course in Term 4, with many events and resources to follow. 

These are terms that we hear a lot – they’re prioritised in departmental policy documents and in documentation for independent and religious schools. That said, the meaning of student empowerment varies between teachers, schools, and communities; it’s clear that teachers want and need the opportunity to develop their understanding about this together in a shared forum.

If you are…

  • implementing student voice and agency projects and programs;
  • supporting student representatives or student leaders;
  • supporting social justice, allies, politics, or environment clubs;
  • coordinating student action teams or community action projects;
  • interested in learning more about student voice and agency; or
  • a learning specialist for student agency,

… then join this growing community (via Facebook), scroll down to register for our mailing list, short course sessions and recordings (dates for Term 2 2023 now available below!).

We’re busily putting together the program for this initiative, which will run until the end of 2023 – let us know what you’d like to see and help us shape the direction of this series by completing our brief community survey.
