Yes, students can still be involved in sport and sporting teams outside of SEDA College.
Year 12 students undertaking the Sports Development Program complete an Australian School-Based Traineeship with the College and our partner Registered Training Organisation (RTO) SEDA Group. A traineeship combines paid employment to a student as a trainee whilst completing their vocational educational training certificate. The students ‘Community Work Day’ is scheduled into the timetable and is generally performed in a Primary School setting whereby students facilitate training and sporting clinics.
Students are responsible for sourcing their own work placement. In Term 1 through the MyPLAN Area of Study students are supported in identifying suitable SWL opportunities. 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 and will acquire the skills that prospective employers need and want in their employees.
SEDA College students who successfully graduate from the College are awarded with the Victorian Certificate Applied Learning (VCAL). The VCAL certificate recognises the successful completion of Senior Secondary education but it does not provide an ATAR score.
