Statistics show that the longer a young person is engaged in education the better their social, emotional and career development is. As such, the foundation of our programs is a Senior Secondary Certificate.

Students achieve this by successfully completing NTCET subjects and Vocational Education and Training (VET) qualifications which develop their industry-specific skills and contribute credits towards their Year 12 Certificate.

SEDA College students engage in curriculum that enhance learning through their interest in sport and recreation. We design our curriculum in collaboration with our industry partners so that students develop the knowledge, skills and attributes of current industry professionals.

Students undertake a combination of NTCET subjects and VET qualifications, which provides them the opportunity to obtain the required 200 credits for their Northern Territory Certification of Education and Training (Year 12 Certificate).

Northern Territory Certificate of Education and Training (NTCET)

All College students undertake subjects that allow them to obtain their Northern Territory Certificate of Education and Training (NTCET) qualification. The NTCET is overseen by the South Australian Curriculum of Education (SACE) and is also known as the Year 12 Certificate.

NTCET subjects, combined with the VET certificates allow our students to obtain the 200 credits required to obtain their NTCET certificate.

All curriculum is designed with engagement the priority, with subject topics largely focusing on sport and post-school relevant skills.

In Year 10 students are enrolled in the following subjects:

  • English
  • Mathematics
  • Indigenous Studies
  • Physical Education
  • Personal Learning Plan

In Year 11 students are enrolled in the following subjects:

  • English (Semester 1)
  • English (Semester 2)

Subjects as required.

Our students get a head start in their careers through our structured Work Placement. This hands-on learning experience occurs one day a week. Students gain an in-depth understanding of the duties they might be expected to perform in the workplace, and they will acquire the skills that prospective employers need and want in their employees.

MyPlan is a digital portfolio that supports students to track their individual goals, achievements, experiences, and growth during their time at SEDA College. Underpinning MyPLAN are the Transferable Work Skills and Personal Habits, which have been identified as important attributes, attitudes, and mindsets to develop in order to succeed at SEDA and beyond.

Development of the MyPLAN portfolio, and the Transferable Work Skills and Personal Habits, is supported with timetabled MyPLAN sessions in class and regular MyPLAN meetings between teachers, parents, and students. 

The five Transferable Work Skills we believe are essential for student development are: 

  • Problem Solving 
  • Personal Organisation 
  • Self-Awareness 
  • Communication 
  • Teamwork

Our teachers, while being experienced educators, also have a broad range of professional skills and excellent theoretical and practical grounding. 

Our ‘one teacher’ to ‘one class’ model 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.  Mentor-style relationships are formed between teachers and students through their shared passions and interests. This mutual connection enhances the bond our students have with their class and the school as a whole. 

During each classroom activity, students are supported by our Education Support Officers (Teachers Aide/Inclusion Support Assistant) in addition to our Teachers. Student’s also have access to the College’s year level Coordinator, Wellbeing Coordinator, Education Engagement & NCCD Coordinator, Indigenous Engagement Coordinator and other relevant staff during the academic year.
