WE HELP EACH STUDENT IDENTIFY AND WORK TOWARDS THEIR CAREER GOALS

One of the first things a student does when they start at SEDA is work with one of our qualified pathways advisors or teacher/trainers to prepare a career action plan, to identify career goals and establish the steps that will help them achieve those objectives.

Once we understand a student’s career goals, we work with students to identify and facilitate appropriate industry and community-based placements to build on what they learn in the classroom. These placements give students a detailed understanding of the career they’re pursuing and provides them with genuine work experience that will assist them to transition into meaningful employment.

SEDA has developed agreements with universities throughout Australia who offer our students a variety of pathway options and the possibility of a guaranteed position in a nominated tertiary course.

Ultimately, students SEDA experience assists them to make an informed choice about their future.

INDUSTRY OPPORTUNITIES AND EXPERIENCES YOU WON’T FIND ANYWHERE ELSE

In addition to teacher/trainer-led activities and projects, SEDA provides each student with a range of learning experiences that take place in industry.

At SEDA we set the bar high because it is what the industry demands and expects. We have strong partnerships with numerous high profile national and state sporting organisations who work closely with our students to connect them to the industry. SEDA students develop networks, learn directly from industry experts, gain entry to high profile venues and events, and work in and around established and respected organisations in the sport and recreation industry.

WE PROMOTE LEARNING FOR LIFE

SEDA believes that learning skills required for life beyond the classroom is essential in every student’s development. We encourage students to be positive and open about learning from different people and situations. This helps them to be enthusiastic about learning and developing multiple skills that they can use in different roles and industries.

For all of these reasons, we aim to develop core skills and attributes in every one of our students so that, regardless of the careers and situations they find themselves in, they will be confident, resourceful and community minded.
