William Angliss Institute is continuing to carefully monitor the COVID-19 situation to ensure the safety of our community as we continue to deliver training both on campus and online as directed by the Victorian Government.
Latest update – 9 April 2020
William Angliss Institute is, as are all Victoria's TAFE and training organisations, remaining open in line with the latest advice from Australia's Chief Medical Officer and Victoria's Chief Health Officer.
All programs will continue to run as timetabled on campus and students can opt to attend either face-to-face delivery or, where available, via online delivery.
Education remains one of the essential reasons that Victorians may leave their premises, and there are a number of courses for which face-to-face learning is required. William Angliss Institute is conducting a small number of classes on campus where necessary, following all of the social distancing directions issued by the Chief Health Officer.
We have instigated the following social distancing measures to support those undertaking face-to-face learning:
• Social distancing of 1.5m to reduce in-person contact for both staff and students in classrooms and in all spaces on campus
• Enclosed spaces have no more than one person per four square metres of floor space on average and have fewer than 100 persons, including lectures and examinations
• Compulsory temperature checks on entry to campus via one entry-point
• Our retail outlets remain open for take-away only with social distancing and increased hygiene practices protocols being enforced.
• All non-essential group activities such as study visits, extra-curricular activities have been cancelled.
• We are providing access to online content remotely and participation in as many other classes as possible by audio-visual link or other remote means.
• We are actively encouraging sick students and staff to stay at home.
• We are strongly encouraging personal hygiene, such as the use of hand sanitiser, by students and staff across campus.
• We have increased environmental cleaning across the campus.
• Student services and wellbeing support has also moved online
The Institute continues to follow the expert advice of the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), which is consistent with the Commonwealth Chief Medical Officer and Department of Health advice, and the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFAT) in relation to COVID-19.
As the situation continues to evolve we will extend our preventative measures in accordance with the advice of the Department of Health and Human Services.
We will continue to keep this website updated as information changes and are regularly communicating with our students and staff.
