The South Metro Junior Football League is proud to announce a new partnership with SEDA for the AFL Victoria Sports Development Program, a Year 11 and 12 senior secondary education program.

For prospective students, this is a chance to gain educational and industry qualifications while gaining a first-hand understanding of the sports industry through involvement with the South Metro Junior Football League, AFL Victoria, and elite AFL Football Clubs.

Students will have the chance to apply their passion and interest for Australian Rules Football, alongside the outstanding professionals who currently administer the game, learning from their wide-ranging expertise in coaching, high-performance, game development, facility and sports management.

SEDA will accompany this industry exposure with high quality education and training courses, providing students with the opportunity to complete their senior secondary education and nationally recognised VET qualifications.


SEDA is a leading provider of hands on education that partners with peak industry organisations in sports, arts and building. We provide students with industry opportunities and experiences they will not find anywhere else and promote learning for life with a focus on preparing students for a successful future.

SEDA has a strong history of our students successfully completing their senior secondary education as well as gaining Vocational Education and Training (VET) qualifications that are recognised throughout Australia.

SEDA students graduate with much more than qualifications. Students leave as mature, resilient independent and capable young adults with the ability to both lead and work within teams and are well placed to make informed choices about their future whether it be employment of further study.

> Tailored careers plans for individual students – developing individual career goals for students and providing pathway opportunities to employment or further study
> Unique industry opportunities – education that takes place in industry with networking and workplace opportunities with leading sporting and community partners
> Education for life beyond school – working to develop personal and career skills essential for life beyond the classroom including leadership, integrity, resilience and critical thinking
> Hands-on learning environment – application of theoretical classroom learning into practical learning activities, tailored to meet individual needs


Applications for the AFL Victoria Sports Development Program are now open! You can apply to start at SEDA in 2017 here.

SEDA and the South Metro Junior Football League look forward to inviting you in for an information session and interview to find out more about the program!
