Complete your secondary education in a high-performance training environment that is endorsed by AFL Victoria.
Students develop elite training habits through specialised training sessions and individualised strength and conditioning programs. The HPP is designed to complement a student’s involvement in their elite sporting pathways whilst supporting the completion of their Senior Secondary Education.
The VCE VM is delivered over two years. During this time, students are connected to ideas, skills and knowledge that can be applied far beyond the boundaries of a classroom.
Our VCE VM Study Areas are developed around projects that align with our students’ interests.
Through a range of practical experiences, students learn about athlete training and development, data analysis, anatomy/physiology, energy systems, training principles, nutrition, and sport specific training. Through the VCE VM Literacy Skills units students will work in groups, developing their collaborative, problem solving and teamwork skills as they put their ideas into action.
SEDA College aims to develop a student’s physical and mental wellbeing to cope with the things that life throws at them. With a strong literacy focus, Healthy Living involves students investigating respectful relationships, drugs and alcohol, safe partying, and social inclusion all of which aim to better equip students within our current society.
The VCE VM Personal Development Skills units provides the framework for projects in this Study Area. Students develop an understanding of the influence of sport in the community and how it can shape culture, behaviour and bring people together as they link with community groups to organise and run community projects and activities.
Sporting clubs have a considerable influence on community life and culture. With a strong VCE VM Work Related Skills and Numeracy focus, students will have the opportunity to consult with sporting bodies and associations to plan, organise, design, and manage their own club.
The students’ work placements and the structured workplace learning (SWL) that ensues, informs this integrated Study Area. Students explore their career pathways in real work settings and acquire transferrable skills that employers value. Students explore the value of volunteering, while building their resume and connecting with key professionals in their chosen industry. SWL provides students with a hands-on learning experience one day a week from Term 2 onwards. Students record their experiences on placement; develop workplace documents such as emails, resumes and cover letters; and participate in mock interviews to gain an in-depth understanding of workplace expectations.
Develop the skills and attributes needed to teach sport skills to a wide variety of people.

In Year 11 and Year 12 students undertake VET qualifications in sport and recreation, providing the opportunity to gain experience in a variety of areas within the industry.
