Vision and Values

The SEDA vision is that each young person benefits from being exposed to a range of learning opportunities which allow them to develop a strong sense of themselves as learners, community participants, family members and designers of their own careers.

The intention is to ensure that each young person educated through SEDA develops as a confident learner, cares for and about others and is optimistic about their future.

The educational philosophy is underpinned by the belief that every young person has the capacity to engage with learning, to achieve their life ambitions and make a significant and positive contribution to their community.

SEDA is built on applied, interest-based curriculum models delivered in industry, the community and the real world, and is supported by knowledge-based learning in classrooms. We use real projects and real experiences as an extension to the classroom.

Different students have different learning styles and not all students excel in a traditional learning environment. The College’s approach to education is captured in one simple but powerful statement – To Engage, Educate and Empower young people.
