Lead the change!
Congress 2021 took place online on Wednesday 22 September, with a focus on prioritising mental health and wellbeing in the Victorian education system. Stay tuned for a full report from Congress 2021.
Congress is VicSRC's flagship student-led experience which brings together secondary students from across Victoria to design solutions to the top issues in the education system, as voted by students. These issues and solutions become VicSRC’s advocacy platform for the next 12 months, spearheaded by the VicSRC Student Executive Advisory Committee.
From Monday 12 July
Got an issue with our education system? Any student in Victoria can tell us an issue through the Congress Survey, open online from 12th July!

Victorian students voice their issues with school and the education system.
Students at Congress work together to design solutions to the top issues, as voted by students.
VicSRC Student Executive Advisory Committee and Ambassadors develop Action Plans for these issues, using the solutions from Congress.
VicSRC works with education decision-makers to put these plans into action and push for student-led change.
Change happens! It might take more than a year, and it might look a bit different to the original plan, but slowly and surely, students shape the education system.
