SEA doesn’t have any political or religious affiliations. Our programs are aligned with the Victorian and Australian Curriculums, and constitute best practice in this area of education.
Our classroom programs are age-appropriate and suited to the developmental stage of the student. What this means is we understand there is big difference in the knowledge students need (and are ready for) as younger children, as older children in primary school, as young adolescents and older teenagers across the years levels at secondary school, or as young adults in tertiary education and beyond.
We train our educators thoroughly so that there is consistency in language and points of key learning across all our classroom programs. Our sessions are delivered in a sensitive and non-judgemental manner in acknowledgement of the diverse family backgrounds that exist in our communities. We use clear and inclusive language. We stick to facts not opinions when working with students in the classroom and the classroom teacher is always present.
Our educators are either qualified teachers or other excellent educators who have worked with children and young people before, and hold current VIT (Victorian Institute of Teaching registration) or a WWC (Working With Children check).
