Areas of Study

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 will encourage you to explore all aspects of fitness and sport including fitness testing, anatomy/physiology, data analysis, energy systems, training principles and more. 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
