Coronavirus (COVID-19) update
William Angliss Institute continues to follow the expert advice of the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), the Australian Government and health experts.
The wellbeing of our students, staff and the wider community remains our number one priority.
Latest update – 27 March 2020
Online delivery across our Melbourne and Sydney campuses is available as of Wednesday 25 March 2020 with a range of online options.
Over the coming days, students will be contacted via email to advise them of the next steps. 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.
Students who are unable to attend practical classes will not be disadvantaged.
All practical classes will continue as usual and adhere to the social distancing guidelines.
An extended range of preventative measures have been introduced.
We have increased cleaning on campus, and are actively enforcing social distancing protocols to ensure we are creating the safest environment possible.
We have reduced access to our Melbourne campus for the general public, contractors and clients. Students, staff and clients of our tenanted businesses have access via a single entry point.
In addition, all students, staff and clients must undertake a mandatory temperature check upon entry to the campus.
We understand that our students and staff have concerns about catching public transport during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Public Transport Victoria (PTV) has increased cleaning on trams, trains and buses and is enforcing social distancing with reduced seats being available.
Transport NSW has also increased cleaning on trains, buses, ferries, light rail and the metro, introduced cashless Opal bus services and light train tram doors automatically open on platforms to reduce contact.
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.
Students are asked to regularly check their student email and myWAI for the latest updates.
All students and parents can contact our dedicated phone number for further advice.
