SEDA College classes are structured to be delivered in an applied learning setting. Students complete their senior secondary certificate, alongside VET qualifications in the areas of sport and recreation, via a hands-on curriculum. Students’ curriculum includes activities based in the classroom, the workplace and the community.
Students travel to the program via public transport. The SEDA College program aims to develop students’ independence, confidence and time management skills and independent travel is part of this self-development.
No, all students leave their current school to attend SEDA College programs. SEDA College is a registered independent co-educational senior secondary school.
No, instead the College offers students entrance into further education via the completion of a Diploma with SEDA Group (RTO 22503) . Following their Diploma Program, students apply to education institutions as non-Year 12 applicants. Institutions look at a student’s grades in the Diploma program, work experience, volunteer work and other achievements when assessing their application. Students also receive guaranteed entry into a number of courses with SEDA Group’s university partners, subject to meeting eligibility criteria.  Further information about our university partners and guaranteed pathways can be found here
We hold SEDA College Open Days in metropolitan Melbourne twice a year where you can see the SEDA College programs in action.
