COVID-19 Updates

COVID-19 Update 14/05/2020

Following advice from DET, we have commenced the return of students to Ringwood Training campus and this will continue in the upcoming weeks. Some classes will be remaining online and remote for the foreseeable future.

The safety of our students and staff are of upmost importance and we are following strict guidelines on safety protocols for onsite course delivery. This includes additional cleaning, having staged classes so there are less students on site, temperature testing, physical distancing and hand sanitiser readily available. In addition, all Ringwood Training staff who are returning to campus have completed COVID-19 Infection Control Training.

Again, we would like to thank all of our students and clients for their understanding and patience during this trying time.

If you have any concerns, please feel free to contact me.

Kind regards,

Shayne van der Heide

Apprentice Re-Engagement Register

Displaced apprentices are now able to link with employers on new national register: https://naen.com.au/apprentice-and-trainee-re-engagement-register

Apprentices and trainees from small businesses who lost their jobs due to the COVID-19 outbreak can now connect with prospective employers through a new national register.

The Apprentice and Trainee Re-engagement Register allows apprentices and trainees who were in a training contract with a small business at March 1 to upload details such as qualifications, work experience and resumes.

Employers of any size can register their details and post vacancies for apprentices or trainees. They can also apply for a wage subsidy of 50 per cent of the apprentice’s or trainee’s wage, under the government’s Supporting Apprentices and Trainees initiative.

COVID-19 Update 08/04/2020

Following advice from DET on 3rd April 2020, Ringwood Training will continue to work remotely for the start of term 2 until advised otherwise.

During this period Ringwood Training will be providing a flexible mode of delivery for all of our students. Ringwood Training teachers will contact students and their employers (if applicable) directly to provide appropriate work and to provide remote support for their learning.

We understand that this may be difficult to navigate during this time and we encourage anyone to contact Ringwood Training if you have any concerns regarding remote learning.

Ringwood Training thank you for your support and understanding during these difficult times as we adapt to the changing climate.

Regards

COVID-19 Update 25/03/2020

Ringwood Training continues to work closely with the Department of Education and Training (DET) and the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) guidelines in response to the current and potential impact of the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) on our students, staff and the wider community.

 

The situation is changing rapidly and as such, we are taking further action to reduce the potential risk and spread of COVID-19.  Although we have no reported or confirmed cases of the virus, we believe the following actions are necessary to keep our staff, students and community safe and well.

 

Following advice from DET on 23 March, Ringwood Training will focus on the preparation of a more flexible mode of delivery for classes and transition to online delivery and remote access to learning material wherever possible.

On-campus delivery for all RT Training will cease from Monday, 30th March, 2020 until further notice.

 

Teaching staff will contact students (and employers where applicable) to outline their online delivery strategies.

 

We encourage you to visit our website regularly for the most up-to-date information.

 

Thank you for your patience and support during these challenges times.

We will continue to respond as quickly as possible to the changing circumstances and update you regularly.

 

Regards
