At SEDA Group, we change people’s lives through individual learning to develop real skills and prepare students for a successful future. We connect with leading sport, recreation and community organisations in Australia, giving students unique opportunities and experiences that meet the needs of the modern day workplace. 

The courses at SEDA provide you with the opportunity to study curriculum matched to your interests, complete practical placements in industry and run events interstate or abroad. Upon completion, you have the opportunity to move into further study with a range of universities or to transition into the workforce, equipped with the knowledge and skills to be successful.  

Upon graduating from the SIS50612 (Diploma of Sport Development), you will have a detailed understanding of the skills and knowledge required to be successful in either further study or the workforce. The practical experiences provided allow you to understand the type of roles in the sport and recreation industry and the attributes that employers seek. Graduates of our programs study and work in a diverse range of industries, including sport and recreation, sport management, occupational therapy, fan and community development, police force, youth work, journalism and writing and trade and apprenticeships (among many more!), with 61 per cent going on to study an undegraduate degree at university after graduation. 

Students who complete their diploma with SEDA are involved in the running of a number of events in the community that have provided positive outcomes for all involved. Through these experiences, students have been able to enhance their communication skills, critical thinking and leadership. Students have the opportunity to plan and implement a real event that is directly linked to the strategic plan of a peak sporting organisation. 

The learning environment at SEDA offers students a range of applied education opportunities which are directly connected to industry. We believe that learning skills required for life beyond the classroom is essential in every student’s development. Through these experiences, students can then make informed choices about their future, whether it be further study or into the workforce. 

To maximise student learning and deliver industry-based training, we’ve set up classrooms at quality sporting, recreation and community facilities. We partner with industry bodies to make sure our students receive hands-on learning in their chosen industry. Students gain transferrable skills that enable them to turn their passion into successful careers. It’s active, engaged learning that helps set students up for future success.
