F2F Workshops

Amplifying Student Agency & Voice

Student agency and voice are essential in supporting students to thrive as learners and proactive citizens. Teachers play a crucial role in creating learning environments where students have autonomy to make decisions about their learning, and recognise their personal power to influence change in real-world contexts. Essential personal and life-long skills are developed including goal setting and action, self-awareness, self-efficacy, informed risk-taking, self-regulation, and collaboration. Student agency and voice lead to increased engagement, improved results and school connectedness.
