SEDA National Indigenous Education and Leadership Program
During AFL Dreamtime week in 2018, SEDA Group (SEDA), The Long Walk and the Essendon Football Club officially launched the SEDA National Indigenous Education and Leadership Program. The program is supported by a number of other Indigenous organisations including: Tiwi College, Tiwi Islands Training and Employment Board (TITEB), Madalah, Australian Indigenous Mentoring Experience (AIME) and Culture is Life.
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.
Indigenous SEDA students in Western Australia will be immersed in the program through a variety of hands-on learning experiences. The program will feature aspects of sharing culture, leadership development, mentoring, employment pathways and pathways to higher education. These students will also have the opportunity to attend a National Indigenous Leadership Camp. This annual event will bring together SEDA Indigenous students from all around Australia.
A number of scholarships will be available for eligible Indigenous students entering into Year 11 and 12 in 2019. For more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1300 777 332.
