Sports Development Programs
You will have the opportunity to develop the skills necessary for turning your passion for coaching into a successful career.

You will also have the chance to develop your planning and collaboration skills, and learn how to communicate proficiently with both large and small groups.
You’ll receive valuable information on athlete training and development from leading industry professionals from state and national sporting bodies. As an athlete, you will have regular access to gym and fitness facilities.

We partner with Acceleration Melbourne—a high-performance training organisation that coaches young developing athletes, helping them increase their power, stamina, speed, and endurance.
Start something great by taking the opportunity to work at high profile sport and recreational events through our volunteering programs and structured work placements. You will explore career pathways in real workplace settings and acquire transferable skills that employers value. Our staff members guide you for the entire length of the program. They expose the value of volunteering, build your resume and help you connect with the right professionals in your chosen industry.
The Great Outdoors
SEDA College encourages you to make a difference. If you’ve got the ambition, we have the opportunity to help you realise your full potential. You’ll have the chance to improve your leadership skills and put your ideas into action by organising events and activities out of the classroom. You’ll also recognise the importance of environment sustainability and use measures to conserve nature for future generations.
Let The Games Begin
Develop your athletic, leadership, and administrative skills by participating and organising competitions. You will not only compete in sporting events, but you’ll also receive real life learning as you explore what happens behind the scenes before, after, and during sporting events.
Money In Sport
You will learn about the principles and practices of financial management in sport, as well as gain a sound understanding of finance topics like revenue management, sports marketing and athlete salaries. You will study the role of media and communications in the development of sport and find out what strategies major sporting clubs and associations use to drive their success.
Sport For All
Leverage the power and influence of SEDA College’s sporting partners and find out what strategies they use to run and organise sporting events and programs for people with special needs. You will understand the role that sport plays in socialisation and learn more about the impact it has on culture and behaviour. You will also discover how sport can eliminate barriers between communities and create a sense of belonging.
SEDA College gives you time to develop your physical and mental wellbeing. You will have the opportunity to be involved in activities similar to those that athletes experience at the elite level. You’ll lead an active and social lifestyle as you find your pathway to further education or the workforce.
Work Placements That Pay off In The Future
Our students get a head start in their careers through our Structured Workplace Learning (SWL) program. This hands-on learning experience is delivered one day a week. Students gain a good understanding of the duties they might be expected to perform in the workplace and they’ll acquire the skills that prospective employers need and want in their employees.
Building & Trade Program
The Building and Trade Program is designed to provide students with a relevant curriculum and learning environment that is directly related to their interest in the building and construction industry.
The full-time structure of the program allows every student the opportunity to develop their theoretical and practical skills across a range of areas within the building and trade industry and out in the community.
READY TO WORK
You will receive the opportunity to discover your areas of interest and understand the range of work opportunities that are available in the building and construction industry. Through the Structured Workplace Learning (SWL) program, you will spend one day a week working in your preferred industry, developing real world skills and networking with experts in the building and construction sector. We also organise site visits and invite guest speakers to educate and inspire your studies. We find that this will help you develop your knowledge of work environments and allows you to forge a career pathway.
THAT’S A SMART BUSINESS
The focus here is on developing leadership and management skills. You will learn all aspects of starting and running a business. This teaches you to handle the challenges that most entrepreneurs face and helps you develop your time and money management skills.
