During AFL Dreamtime week in 2018, SEDA Group (SEDA) officially launched its 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 and AIME.
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 Victoria will be immersed in the program through a variety of hands-on learning experiences. Pending funding, 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.
Students in Victoria will meet as a group several times a year and undertake a range of activities, such as:
• Engaging with Indigenous organisations, Elders and strengthening culture
• Receiving and providing mentoring support
• Mapping meaningful pathways to employment and/or higher education
• Leadership development
WE ARE SEEKING YOUR SUPPORT.
SEDA Group (RTO: 22503) and our program partners are currently seeking support from corporate, government and philanthropic organisations to support scholarships for Indigenous students involved in the program.
