Congress is VicSRC's flagship student-led event which usually takes place over 3 days in the July school holidays in Melbourne. Students from across Victoria come together to plan action that will help solve the top issues in the education system, as voted by students. These action priorities become VicSRC’s advocacy platform for the next 12 months, spearheaded by our Executive Committee.

Got an issue with our education system? Congress is here to help! Anyone at Congress can pitch an issue and the whole group votes on the top issues to work on.
Action Teams are groups of delegates led by the VicSRC Student Executive Advisory Committee members. They develop plans of action on the top issues. You get to pick your Action Team based on which issue is most important to you. Over the course of Congress, you will spend time with your Action Team working on actions and strategies that will help solve your issue, ending with presenting your plan and everyone voting on the order of priority.
Over the years we have had some amazing people come and speak at Congress, as well as skill-building workshops covering everything from running your SRC to creating a zine!
