To engage students in their education the learning environment needs to address their learning style, be relevant to their interests and delivered in context.
The delivery of quality 'hands-on' education is the focus at SEDA.
Over 1,600 students are currently completing their secondary studies with SEDA across three states.
SEDA delivers quality learning outcomes for students because it captures their passion and builds a full and engaging curriculum into the learning experience. Students remain engaged because they learn by doing, are connected to real world experiences and are included in an industry that they are passionate about.
Students achieve outcomes for their future through a broad range of subjects and industry experiences, while also developing key life and employability skills. The results we see are mature, resilient and very capable young men and women graduating from SEDA, empowered with a range of choices for further education or employment.
The student experience at SEDA is very different compared to a normal secondary school. Some unique features of SEDA’s Programs include:
Sport/Rec and Arts:
Through basing the education structure and curriculum around a student's area of interest, students become engaged and possess a strong motivation towards their learning.
Learning by doing is the SEDA way. Students actively get involved in real activities linked with industry bodies and local communities and deliver programs in a variety of settings. Lessons are built into these activities which bridge the gap between in-class theory and real world practice. In addition, students develop crucial life skills such as organising, planning, time management, interpersonal communication and teamwork.
Connection is what the SEDA student experience is all about. Students team up with the same teacher for the whole year allowing them to develop solid meaningful relationships with a positive mentor. Being surrounded by others who also share a similar passion allows students to quickly develop a strong sense of belonging.
The SEDA curriculum gives students the opportunity to improve their organisational, public speaking, leadership and teamwork skills. Students at SEDA grow in confidence as they are provided with leading roles in their local community.
The work experience programs at SEDA allow students to put a strong foot in the door of the industry and network with a variety of key personal. Students are treated as employees in their work placement, providing them with high levels of responsibility, resulting in the students developing a sense of maturity and a strong understanding of the workplace environment.
We have strong links with Education Partners and Sporting bodies to enable our students with the opportunity to progress into further education or employment.
