Teach the Teacher Empower is designed for schools who currently have an active student voice practice and student leadership structure.

Student voice is a key component of the Education State vision. The Framework for Improving Student Outcomes (FISO) encourages schools to make student voice a priority and to empower students to fully and proudly participate in school life.

Victorian Student Representative Council (VicSRC) is uniquely placed by being the only organisation in Victoria to support schools implement FISO by offering their innovative student-led program Teach the Teacher.
