27/05/2021 Advice regarding 7-day lockdown and classes

Dear Staff, Current Students and Prospective Students

I am sure most of you are already aware that the Victorian Government has announced a 7 Day lockdown from 11:59 PM tonight (27 May 2021) until 11:59PM on Thursday night (03 June 2021).

As per the Victorian Acting Premier’s announcement and the previous lockdown requirements, and although we are permitted to provide essential health services training during this time, we have decided to err on the side of caution.

We therefore will close all physical locations to staff, students and visitors for any non-essential visits during this 7 day period.  Our core administrative and management staff will still answer all calls and emails and will ensure that all class-based and blended-online student services are maintained during this time.  We have notified all class-based students today, so please check your phone for text messages and/or emails.

Classes at all locations will be delivered as Zoom meetings during the normal class times, but should not exceed more than three (3) hours per session.  Please use your scheduled class time effectively and continue reading and completing your assessment tasks over the week.

As always, please observe all recommended precautions, and most importantly, if you are unwell, get tested as soon as possible and stay isolated until you receive a negative result.

Stay safe everyone and we look forward to seeing you in class again very soon!
