Curriculum

Completing Year 12 is essential for a young person’s social, personal and career development. As such, the foundation of our programs is a Senior Secondary Certificate. Students in the NT achieve this by successfully completing school subjects from the Northern Territory Certificate of Education and Training (NTCET). 

Sports development program

SEDA College NT students undertake a combination of mainstream and Vocational Education and Training (VET) qualifications, which develop their industry-specific skills and contribute credits towards their NTCET. 

Develop your knowledge and skills to work in the fitness industry through developing and implementing an advanced fitness program aimed at achieving fitness for peak performance. You will work with a strength and conditioning coach and other professionals to achieve fitness in preparation for a fitness challenge or sporting competition.

Develop your leadership skills in a sport and recreation setting by leading the planning and delivery of a variety of sport, fitness and recreation sessions for different groups. In the process, you will improved your teamwork skills and gain a better understanding of group dynamics. 

SEDA aims to develop your physical and mental wellbeing to cope with the things life throws at you. In Health, you will investigate contemporary health issues relevant to adolescents and develop strategies to help improve your resilience, mental, physical, and social wellbeing.

Learn about the factors that influence participation in sport across the community. You will link with a community organisation to identify opportunities to increase participation in sport and recreation, develop an action plan to engage people and implement your services.

Get involved in your local community and promote sport, fitness and health through implementing programs for marginalised groups. You will develop your understanding of diversity, as well as your collaboration and problem-solving skills as you put your ideas into action.

Our students get a head start in their career through our Structured Workplace Learning. This hands-on learning experience is delivered 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.

Develop the skills and attributes needed to teach sport skills to a wide variety of people. Access SEDA’s industry experts and sporting partners to gain a greater understanding of coaching principles and the development of coaching sessions. 

In Year 11, students undertake VET qualifications in sport and recreation, providing the opportunity to gain experience in a variety or areas within the industry whilst completing a School-Based Traineeship*.  

MyPLAN is a digital portfolio that supports students to track their individual goals, achievements, experiences, and growth during their time at SEDA. 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
