The concept of a student-led project does not equate to the teacher being redundant and the students free to do what they like. 

The role of the teacher is to:

  • Help coordinate and mentor students.
  • Ensure that students work within all relevant school policies.
  • Ensure that the students’ project has been appropriately planned with OH&S and student well-being taken into account.
  • Ensure the plan has been fully scrutinised by all relevant parties and modifications made before students start their project. 
  • Provide students with the relevant assessment task on which they will be assessed against the learning outcomes or standards identified by the teacher. 
  • Ensure that all relevant parties are informed about the progress of the project.
  • At the end of the day, the teacher will remain accountable. The teacher will need to make sure the students remain accountable. If the students can’t remain on track, their teacher will need to take action. 

The role of the students:

  • Is to do most of the work.
  • Meet agreed outcomes including completing assessment tasks.
  • Work with other students in planning and completing a project.
  • Design their project taking into account school policies, needs of their partners, OH&S etc. 
  • Work within their community to achieve environmental benefits.
