Information for apprentices and employers

Information for international students

We continue to work closely with the Department of Education and Training, the State Government, and Health officials. Chisholm has facilitated training and assessment for select students who are required to undertake practical activities and/or assessment to allow them to continue to progress through their training.

Students who are required to return to campus receive confirmation from their educators or education managers. Continue to check your Chisholm student emails for updates.

What information should I have received if I am to return?

For students who are required to return you will receive an email sent to your student email address. It lists your return day and date, time, campus, and timetable information, as well as other details including our preparation in safety and hygiene for your return to campus.

What’s changed on campus?

The campus environment, classrooms and practical areas have changed to manage the social distancing and other health and hygiene requirements, as detailed by the Department of Education and Training and the Chief Health Officer.

On campus arrival and classes:

  • Attendance on-campus is restricted to the building and your designated classroom and training areas.
  • Entry and exit points will be clearly identified and signposted.
  • Security teams will be on-site to ensure social distancing measures are observed.
  • You will be required to maintain a 1.5 metre distance between yourself, your peers, and educators at all times and you’re encouraged to advise your educator, if for any reason, this is not being maintained.
  • Hand sanitiser and antiseptic wipes will be available throughout the spaces. Please remember to use sanitiser regularly and maintain clean hands through regular washing in the bathroom and wash facilities in your building. You will also be required to wipe down any equipment or machinery used.
  • You will be required to wear a mask at certain times and in certain situations. Please follow the directions of your educator and be aware of the latest advice being provided by the Victorian Government. Chisholm’s mask requirements are determined by the State Government’s regulations.
  • You will be required to leave the campus as soon as your activities are completed.
  • Please bring your own food and drink if required, as our on-campus cafeterias are operating limited hours and will be closed from mid-December through until mid-January.

It is important that you arrive on time to ensure effective and sufficient learning and assessment is undertaken.

In the workshop or practical areas:

  • Class sizes have been significantly reduced to manage social distancing and effective learning.
  • Your educator will brief you on hygiene requirements prior to the commencement of each lesson.
  • If you have any concerns while on campus, please raise these immediately with your educator.
