Dear Valued Partners,
We are excited to advise that for Term 3, 2020 ALG will be resuming face-to-face delivery across all of its courses. We can’t wait to have our students back on campus!
We have implemented 4 new study day patterns / timetable options, which are now consistent nationally at all of our campuses:
• Monday and Tuesday
• Wednesday and Thursday
• Friday and Saturday
• Evenings - Monday to Thursday
Over time, as we have introduced new courses and expanded into new interstate markets, our national timetable has become cumbersome. In the Covid-19 environment (with borders closed etc) we have had to refine our approach to enable us to be more efficient and get better utilisation of our campuses. The new consistent study day patters also allow us to provide a more even distribution of students across classes.
Where more than 1 study pattern option exists for a course in a state, students will have the ability to apply to move if they prefer the alternate option to what they have been assigned. There is no intention to change student’s timetables term to term. However, we can no longer commit to maintaining the same study days for a student for their entire course duration.
Students will be advised ahead of the term of their timetable for the upcoming term – we are aiming to be able to do this for future terms by around Week 8 of the prior term. As noted above, in most cases there will no change from the prior term.
Going forward students will apply to study a course in a state - not a specific timetable option for the course in the state. Students will be able to express a preference for a timetable option out of those available, however the allocation to the preferred option is not guaranteed.
Below is the COVID safe brief we have sent out to our students in order for ALG to ensure the health and safety of our students and staff.
