About the Program

During AFL Dreamtime week in 2018, SEDA Group (SEDA) officially launched the SEDA National Indigenous Education and Leadership Program at The Long Walk luncheon. The program is supported by a number of other Indigenous partner organisations including: The Long Walk, MADALAH, Tiwi College, Tiwi Islands Training and Employment Board (TITEB), Australian Indigenous Mentoring Experience (AIME) and Culture is Life.

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 College students in South Australia 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 South Australia 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


SEDA Group (RTO: 22503), SEDA College and our program partners are currently seeking support from corporate, government and philanthropic organisations with the aim of providing fee reduction or full scholarships for South Australian Indigenous students involved in the program.
