The SEDA model places student interest at the forefront of their senior secondary education, alongside a practical connection to industry and an individual approach to teaching and learning. SEDA accesses leading industry partnerships including Cricket Australia, NT Cricket, Netball NT, Basketball NT, the Darwin Basketball Association, Football NT, AFLNT, Tennis NT, NRL NT and the Parramatta Eels.
The SEDA Group model has demonstrated success in engaging, educating and empowering young people in the Northern Territory since 2013.
What makes for an engaging education? For us, the key component is interest-based learning. Young people and their families choose our College because we connect with their interests and then get students outside of the classroom to learn directly from industry.
Our ‘one teacher, one classroom’ model also allows our teachers to take on a true mentoring approach, where they walk alongside and support the individual journey of our students as they complete their secondary education. Our teachers work with each student to develop their confidence as staff are specifically recruited for their capacity to build healthy and respectful relationships with student and develop skills for life.
SEDA College NT delivers the Northern Territory Certification of Education and Training (NTCET) using an applied learning approach where hands-on learning happens both inside and outside the classroom. Through this applied learning model, students have a deeper connection to their education, resulting in enhanced engagement levels. Students also undertake industry placements and community project work to develop their work readiness and community awareness.
Our vision is that students benefit from being exposed to a range of learning opportunities. Each student is supported to develop a career plan that is specific to their aspirations and goals and one that makes direct links to the learning activities they undertake and their chosen pathway.
