We spoke to students who have returned to Box Hill Institute campuses to continue learning the practical components of their courses and here’s some of the things they had to say:
Here’s what it looks like on campus these days: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dVNsQSQaEVo&t.
TAFEs are recognised as essential services by the Victorian Government and we continue to offer face-to-face training where necessary, ensuring the provision of hands-on skills-based learning is provided in line with health advice.
All students invited to attend a class on campus undergo a daily screening and must sign a student declaration to ensure the health and safety of all students on campus. If you need to queue to enter campus, we ask that you be patient as the daily screening process is necessary to ensure optimal staff and student safety.
Most staff members and students continue to work remotely, ensuring there are minimal people on campus. Once a class is finished, staff and students are expected to return home.
There has been no reported coronavirus (COVID-19) cases at Box Hill Institute campuses as at 12.30pm, Tuesday 16 June 2020.
The Department of Education and Training has developed a thorough set of FAQs in relation to studying at TAFE and coronavirus, with specific responses for general students, apprentices and trainees, and international students. Find out more.
Public Transport Victoria has information on its website about the measures it is taking to keep passengers safe, including increased cleaning and cashless transactions. It also outlines measures passengers can take including social distancing.
While we are working through this phased transition to campus, we are encouraging students to share feedback with us about our processes and procedures on campus in response to COVID-19.
Students can send feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org. Collecting this feedback will enable our project team to ensure that our processes are working effectively in our goal to keep you safe.
