VTA response to COVID-19
Latest Update (as of 6 April 2020) -
The Victorian Government announced additional measures to help reduce people's chances of infection and slow the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) in our community. This includes the shutdown of many non-essential services across Victoria. At present, it does not include the closures of TAFEs.
TAFEs are continuing to increase their ability to deliver training remotely or on-line where possible. This may be difficult for some courses, for example training in the trades. The health and safety of students and staff are our first priority. Where activities continue to occur on campus, strict social distancing guidelines are being followed.
Each TAFE will have their own arrangements for the continuation of training. Please contact the TAFE that you are enrolled at for further details.
Actions in place at VTA office until 30 April 2020
VTA has taken action to reduce the potential risk and spread of the virus among staff, members and visitors to the office.
It is intended the VTA office will continue to operate during normal business hours to maintain business-as-usual functions.
VTA has offered its staff the option to work remotely from home, where possible, until at least the end of April. Staff can be accessed by email and mobile phone. In order to minimise the risk of exposure to the virus for our staff, members and visitors, VTA Network and VTA project group meetings scheduled to be held at the VTA office will revert to remote meetings.
We will keep you up-to-date with further developments and actions as they transpire.
Thank you for your understanding.
