COVID-19 Update 22 October 2021

Melbourne update

The Victorian Government has announced restrictions will start to ease from 11:59pm Thursday 21 October, now the State has reached the goal of 70% fully vaccinated for those over 16 years, five days ahead of schedule.

The Melbourne campus will re-open on Tuesday 26 October only for students attending practical classes as notified by their teaching departments.
The Victorian Government has announced that students are not yet required to be vaccinated to attend practical classes on campus.

William Angliss Institute encourages all students to get vaccinated. In addition, employers in industry may require students to be fully vaccinated to attend excursions or complete work placements.

Also from Tuesday 26 October, workplace-based training and assessment will recommence in industry.

In line with the Victorian Government and the Department of Health and Human Services advice, we are committed to providing the safest possible environment for our students and staff.

All students and staff are required to carry a face mask to wear indoors except if at home or if an exception applies. Face masks will be required outdoors where 1.5 metres physical distancing cannot be adhered to.

On entry to campus, you will be required to:

  • check-in via the Service Victoria app
  • show your confirmed check-in to our friendly security staff
  • swipe in with your student card
  • if you leave campus, you will be requested to check-in again if you return to ensure everyone is registered
  • have a temperature check on arrival.

Please keep an eye on myWAI for more information or contact your teaching department if you have any questions about your timetable.
