VicSRC Policy Platform

The VicSRC Policy Platform:


The VicSRC Policy platform is an essential resource which underpins all our work in student voice and agency - and can be used as a guide to yours. 

The VicSRC Policy Platform covers nine focus areas:

  • The future of learning | All schools give students a voice in shaping their education, preparing them for a changing world
  • Student voice in policy and program development | Students meaningfully participate in policy and program development processes
  • Student voice in school decision making | Students are involved in school decision-making at all levels
  • Curriculum and learning | All students have a broad range of choices of what and how to learn and these options are equally valued
  • School funding and resourcing | All students have access to high-quality teaching, facilities and resources
  • A culture of respect | Every student feels safe and respected at school
  • Student wellbeing | All students have ready access to the support they need, including mental healh services
  • Collaboration and partnerships: working together | Schools and their students work together with their communities
  • Sustainability | Every school works towards a more sustainable future


Specific goals and targets are attached to each of these areas, and the Policy Platform details why and how you can incorporate the focus areas into your work and environments.

We encourage all students, teachers and schools to use the Policy Platform to guide your approaches to student voice as we work together to transform our education system!
