Sports Education and Development Australia (SEDA) was established in 2006 as a provider of senior secondary education and training in partnership with schools.
The concept was established to meet the needs of young people requiring an applied learning education focus that was set in the real world. SEDA is the first non school senior secondary provider to be registered with the Victorian Registration and Qualifications Authority (VRQA).
The programs offered operate in conjunction with the DEECD and Victoria’s major sporting bodies. Students have the opportunity to link with Cricket Victoria, AFL Victoria, Melbourne Victory F.C., Melbourne Heart F.C., Life Saving Victoria, Netball Victoria, Basketball Victoria, Swimming Victoria, Yachting Victoria, Surfing Victoria or Tennis Victoria whilst completing their education in a challenging and rewarding sporting environment.
Students who about to enter Year 11 or Year 12 have the opportunity to complete a Diploma in Sport (Development) and their year 12 through SEDA’s Sports Development Programs. The program also provides school leavers with the opportunity to complete further study. Courses can be completed over two or three years and offer extensive involvement in the Sport and Recreation Industry
The program uses an applied learning model combining both classroom and practical based activities linked closely with our sporting partners and the local community. Students are given the opportunity to access excellent sporting facilities and also get to interact and work closely with sporting organisation staff. Studies include:
- Sports Management
- Sports Administration
- Event Management
- Sports Science
- Project Management
Schools and SEDA have responded to the needs of many young people through a program that engages them in their study, motivates them to challenge themselves and improves their skills.
