24/03/2020 - Transition To Online Learning

Navitas Professional continues to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic, which is presenting unprecedented challenges for our teaching and learning communities.   

While there have been no confirmed COVID-19 cases at our locations to date, Navitas Professional is preparing to move its programs online to ensure continuity of learning for our students and help ensure your health and wellbeing.   

Considering recent government guidelines on social distancing, commencing this week, all Professional Year Programs (Accounting, Engineering, and IT) will be delivered in an online environment. This will allow students to continue their studies remotely and fulfil their coursework obligations.   

During this time, our locations will remain open with limited staff onsite to support students who want to access computer labs and equipment.  

Since the outbreak of COVID-19, Navitas Professional has put the health and well-being of students and staff first. We have:  

  • increased cleaningservices and provided additional hand sanitisation at our locations  
  • widely promoted good hygiene to minimise the risk of infection 
  • encouraged staff and students to stay home if they feel unwell and to seek medical advice 
  • implemented a global reporting system to record all suspected and confirmed cases of COVID-19 among our students and staff  
  • have been developing continuity plans which focus on supporting students to continue their studies with minimal disruption 

We understand this is an uncertain time for staff, students and their families. We will continue working hard to ensure the health and wellbeing of our community, to support students to continue their studies, and look after our staff.
