We understand that the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) is on your minds as it permeates the news and daily conversations. The safety and wellbeing of our entire community continue to be our first priority in the wake of the ever-evolving situation around COVID-19. The College will communicate with parents twice a week at the very minimum to ensure our community remains informed. This dedicated web page will be updated regularly – please check back often for current news and instructions.
The Australian Industry Trade College has mobilised a plan for our young people, taking into consideration our unique industry education model. This is an evolving situation and our focus at this point is to get our young people through to the end of their current block. As such, we would like to clarify the following arrangements:
Group 1, Year 10 will continue with the Learning From Home Industry program until the end of block, Tuesday 19 May.
Group 1, Year 11 will receive a phone call from their Industry Consultant on Monday or Tuesday next week (11-12 May) to discuss WEX on a case by case basis if not completing TAFE Pre employment Training.
Group 1, Year 12 will receive a phone call from their Industry Consultant on Monday or Tuesday next week (11-12 May) to discuss WEX on a case by case basis. Year 12s will be prioritised for WEX placement.
Group 2, Year 10 will continue with the Learning From Home Education program until the end of block.
Group 2, Year 11 will move to on-campus learning from Monday 11 May.
Group 2, Year 12 will move to on-campus learning from Wednesday 13 May.
Friday 22 May will be a Student Free Day to allow College staff time to prepare for the changeover to on-campus teaching for all young people. No formal lessons or learning from home will be required on this day.
Year 12 Employment
To our Year 12 families, the AITC will continue to work with your young person, post-graduation, to achieve an employment outcome. This is not unusual for us – we’ve always gone above and beyond. In fact in 2019 we had 43 young people signed into apprenticeships or traineeships post-graduation to the end of January, 2020.
The AITC will always be ready for employment opportunities as they present themselves. We ask that you work with us to continue to develop your young person’s employability, right through the year, regardless of the learning method, in preparation for their journey to industry.
