Indigenous Programs


During AFL Dreamtime week in 2018, SEDA Group (SEDA) officially launched the SEDA National Indigenous Education and Leadership Program at The Long Walk luncheon.

The focus of the SEDA National Indigenous Education and Leadership Program is to work closely with the sporting industry, education sector and Indigenous community partners to educate and empower our Indigenous students and assist them to realise their potential. A key aspect of the program is to develop the next generation of young Indigenous leaders and role models and create strong pathways for our students into higher education and/or employment.

The program is supported by a number of other Indigenous partner organisations including: The Long Walk, MADALAH, Tiwi College, Tiwi Islands Training and Employment Board (TITEB), Australian Indigenous Mentoring Experience (AIME) and Culture is Life.

All Indigenous SEDA students are invited to participate in all aspects of the National Indigenous Education and Leadership Program. Students will be immersed in a variety of hands-on learning experiences, including aspects of sharing culture, leadership development, mentoring, employment pathways and pathways to higher education.

Students may also have the opportunity to attend a National Indigenous Leadership Camp. This annual event will bring together SEDA Indigenous students and staff from all around Australia.

Thanks to the generous support of our WA Indigenous Scholarship partner MADALAH, we are able to offer 40 scholarships for WA Indigenous students in 2020 in Perth and Bunbury across Years 11 and 12.

Successful scholarships recipients will receive full tuition, uniform, laptop and be required to participate in leadership and development opportunities provided by MADALAH, SEDA and our partners.

There are a limited number of scholarships still available for 2020. For more information, please email or call 1300 777 332


SEDA and our partners are working hard collectively to secure government, corporate and philanthropic partnerships to remove any financial barriers that may preclude students from participating in our education and Leadership programs and allow the program to expand into new regions and communities.

In 2019, SEDA commenced the year with 128 fulltime Indigenous Students and aiming for 400+ students nationally by 2020. We have established a National Indigenous Advisory Group to oversee the National Indigenous Strategy and Programming.

If your organisation is interested in supporting SEDA, SEDA Colleges, MADALAH and our other national partners in providing Indigenous scholarships, please contact SEDA Group National Indigenous Manager, Jethro Calma-Holt on 0400 840 454 or email
