Bendigo TAFE CEO Sally Curtain said significant work has been undertaken, and continues to be underway, to reintroduce students and staff to campus.
“As the Victorian Government has recently highlighted, TAFE is a key part of the vocational education sector with a critical role to play in the post-pandemic world to build skills and ensure students become job-ready,” she said.
“As an essential service, Bendigo TAFE has continued to operate and teach during the pandemic, just in a different way. We are very appreciative of our dedicated educators and students who have responded and adapted so positively to the new teaching and learning environment.
“We have everyone’s health and safety at heart and take guidance from the Government as we reintroduce our students and staff to campus in a staggered, methodical way.
“This means theory being completed through online classes and practical assessments on campus in smaller numbers with strict social distancing measures and personal protective equipment as required.”
