Wodonga TAFE COVID-19 message re return to campus
Remote learning has continued for the beginning of Term 4 as Wodonga TAFE’s Victorian campuses have remained closed as per the Victorian Government’s directions for TAFEs and training organisations.
The Victorian Government’s ‘Roadmap: Delivering the National Plan’ to reopening indicates a return to campus for fully vaccinated students, staff and visitors will be possible in the coming weeks. We look forward to sharing further details about this very soon.
In the meantime, most of our courses will continue with remote delivery and students will continue to learn from home. The exception to this is those students, as identified in the Authorised Provider and Authorised Worker list, who have been able to continue with practical assessments onsite. All students should continue to liaise directly with their teachers regarding their course requirements and scheduled assessments.
Wodonga TAFE staff continue to work remotely to deliver training where possible and perform administrative functions such as processing enrolments and answering enquiries. Contact our friendly Customer Experience team directly on 1300 698 233, email email@example.com or text/SMS to 0480 072 590.
Wodonga TAFE is committed to the protection and safety of all students, staff, and visitors. We will continue to monitor the advice of the Victorian Chief Health Officer, and will provide further advice about safely returning to onsite learning as soon as possible.
The Department of Education and Training encourages all higher education and training provider staff and students to get vaccinated. Further information can be found online Coronavirus (COVID-19) Victoria | Coronavirus Victoria
