Construction and Trade


Our Construction and Trade Program has been designed for students who want to develop the practical skills and knowledge needed to obtain an apprenticeship in the Building and Trade industry.

Partnering side by side with SEDA to deliver this program is BGC Australia. BGC provides our students with real-life learning opportunities and experiences within the industry, as well as potential work placements. The experiences are varied in a huge range of trades, allowing students to better understand and choose which trades they are most interested in. 

Students gain skills, knowledge and networks within the Construction and Trade industry that will assist them in finding employment in the areas of the industry they wish to go into.

Areas of Study

Our curriculum is planned and developed with industry experts.  SEDA College WA takes the traditional WACE and VET curriculum and contextualises it to create maximum student engagement.

Below is a example of some Areas of Study students may take during their time at SEDA.

Every Monday, students will visit Skill Hire in Forrestfield to undergo theory and practical based VET curriculum as they work to complete their Certificate II in Construction Pathways.

In this Mathematics Essentials Area of Study students will research the costs associated to work in construction as an owner of a small business. Students will then take this learning and apply it as they plan their Year 12 Community Camp and budget for the following year. This real-life learning takes on a whole new meaning, when you need to get the fuel budget correct to ensure you make it to the regional camp location.

In this Building & Construction Area of Study students will be completing a range of practical production tasks as they continue to build their skill set. This Area of Study will culminate in students embarking on a Community Day trip as they bring unity to the community, pave paths, and build and paint structures for a community in need.

Learning the ropes before you can get paid the big bucks is a prerequisite of any job. In the Construction & Trade industries, young people start by completing their apprenticeship. This is how we have built our Mathematics Essentials course, where students will learn the basics through a range of practical building activities focusing on measurement and calculations. Who said you don’t need Maths? Who said Maths has to be stuck in a classroom?

The Construction & Trade industries boast a wide spectrum of sectors ad job roles, ranging from crane operators, concreters, site managers and carpenters through to sales representatives. In this English Area of Study, students will engage with Sales staff from BGC and other industry professionals, as they learn the scope of the Construction & Trade sales roles. Students will apply the sales skills learned in class and through these real-life experiences, to sell a brick and even create their own “Bob the Builder”-style children’s book that sells an underlying message of the importance of teamwork. 

First Aid is an essential part of the Construction and Trade industries. In this Area of Study, students will gain the knowledge and skills required to identify and act in response to first aid incidents.
