Curriculum

The SEDA College program is planned and developed with industry experts, and deliberately connects the learning experiences of our students to the type of activities and projects that might be undertaken if working in a sport and recreation environment. The College takes the traditional WACE and VET curriculum and contextualises it to create maximum student engagement.

Sports development program

SEDA College students engage in Areas of Study that provide context and enhance learning through their interest in sport and recreation

Great coaches are hard to find. In this area of study, students are introduced to the roles and responsibilities of an entry level coach. Students explore and compare good and poor coaching practices and are given the opportunity to apply these skills with real life participants. Coaching practices are reviewed, and the students skills are refined so that they are ready to conduct participation clinics representing their sporting partner.

In The Athlete, students will gain an understanding of what it takes to perfect skills. Students will learn how to perform a skill analysis and design and implement a development program. Students will explore and  apply skill improvement tools and feedback mechanisms and compare skill abilities of varying levels of athletes.

You will have the opportunity to develop the skills necessary for turning your passion for coaching into a successful career. In addition, you have the opportunity to network with SEDA’s sporting partners and leaders in the industry to learn coaching principles and develop coaching sessions.

Sport is the universal language. Take the time to explore how sport can influence and shape the culture within a community. Learn and experience how sport can break down all sorts of barriers and bring people together. In this area of study, students will connect with sporting partners and industry strategies to help build better communities.

Participate in the SEDA College WA Game On season and develop your skills and broaden your knowledge about the game you love. In this area of study, students put their skills and conditioning into match practice, as well as gain a broader understanding of what it takes to run a sporting competition. Participate in Game On, show off your skills and explore other aspects of the game such as sports psychology, officiating, fixtures and resulting.

MyPLAN is a digital portfolio that supports students to track their individual goals, achievements, experiences, and growth during their time at SEDA College WA. Underpinning MyPLAN are the Transferable Work Skills and Personal Habits, which have been identified as important attributes, attitudes, and mindsets to develop in order to succeed at SEDA and beyond. Development of the MyPLAN portfolio, and the Transferable Work Skills and Personal Habits, is supported with timetabled MyPLAN sessions in class and regular MyPLAN meetings between teachers, parents, and students.

learning Environment

Students will have access to a team of experienced teachers and support staff for sport, literacy, wellbeing, and career guidance. They are experts in their field, helping students to develop their individual passions and achieve outstanding success.

Our teachers, while being experienced educators, also have a broad range of professional skills and excellent theoretical and practical grounding. They have industry experience, which will vary from teacher to teacher. All staff are invested in unlocking each student’s potential as they guide them on a pathway to success.

Our teachers develop a professional relationship with their students, giving them the skills and guidance required to realise their full potential. Our staff also work in close collaboration with industry experts from our partner organisations, delivering hands-on learning and creating meaningful workplace connections.

At SEDA College WA, we understand the significance of wellbeing for student achievement. The “one teacher, one classroom” model we use allows our teachers to develop positive relationships with each student and support their individual journeys. They act as mentors, supporting both learning and wellbeing throughout the program. If concerns become more significant, each teacher will collaborate with the Program Coordinator and/or Student Connect staff to provide the best care possible.

Student Connect provides professional wellbeing assistance in collaboration with the teaching team and parents/carers. We find open and regular communication makes a difference to a student’s experience while they are at school. We encourage regular contact between SEDA staff, students and parents/carers; and where appropriate, external support providers. This is critical to ensure each student’s individual needs are met. Our aim is to develop each student’s capacity to access support services in their local area that are age appropriate and best placed to assist.

Student Connect also promotes student wellbeing by developing awareness, raising activities relevant to the needs of our students.

The five core skills we believe are essential for student development are:

  • Problem Solving
  • Personal Organisation
  • Self-Awareness
  • Communication
  • Teamwork
