Complete your Years 11 and 12 in the SEDA College Aquatics Sports Development Program.
The program provides a direct link to industry opportunities in a hands-on learning environment all connected to your interest in aquatics.
The connection between education and industry facilitates authentic learning experiences and student opportunities. This combination enables our students to acquire the skills to support future educational and employment pathways.
Our curriculum is designed to connect students to ideas, skills and knowledge that can be applied far beyond the boundaries of a classroom.
Our VCAL is organised around areas of study. The flexibility in the delivery of the VCAL strands allows us to design an integrated curriculum aligned to student 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.
Through MyPLAN meetings, the work that students do within the Areas of Study and on Structured Workplace Learning (SWL) placements, students will explore 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 starting from Term 2. Students gain an in-depth understanding of the duties they might be expected to perform in the workplace.
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.
