College Administration offices are open as follows:

College campuses are open as above to staff and students for administration enquiries. Masks are encouraged for indoor settings where you cannot maintain a safe distance from others but no longer mandatory.

The College will follow the Department of Education’s Return to Vocational Education and Training Guidelines and NSW Health public health orders in relation to COVID. Students attending classes on campus are strongly encouraged to protect themselves against COVID-19 with at least two doses of a vaccination and a booster shot. Vaccinations may also be a requirement for mandatory work placements in aged care, disability, childcare, health and other courses.

Term 2 beginning 2 May 2022

The Term 2 brochure and full course details are available on our website. If you continue to be impacted by the COVID lockdown, the NSW Government has also provided funding for a range of free short courses to help improve work skills or retrain for a new career under ACE Funding. These will be available to eligible individuals – see Free short courses for a list of available courses and eligibility details.

Most Diploma and Certificate courses are currently available fee free for eligible individuals under Skilling for Recovery/Jobtrainer funding. This funding has been recently extended to allow fee free enrolments until 31 December 2022. If you are:

  • unemployed (with or without a benefit),
  • aged 16-24 (working or not) or
  • at risk of unemployment

you can retrain or upskill at no cost. See Skilling for Recovery for full details.

Fee free training at the College is also available in the priority areas of aged care, disability and childcare courses for those who are employed and meet the basic JobTrainer eligibility.
