To all members of the NECA Education & Careers community

Update 23 March: As you would be aware, the Australian Government has recently implemented updated coronavirus measures. At NECA Education & Careers, the safety of our students, staff and stakeholders is our top priority and as such we have made the difficult decision to close the trade school. However, there are some temporary exceptions as below. 

We are advising all students, apprentices and trainees, and their employers, that the NECA Education & Careers trade school will be closed from midnight Monday 23 March. Our aim is to re-open on Tuesday 14 April. As mentioned, however, there are some temporary exceptions, as below.

Temporary Exceptions

The following classes will go ahead as scheduled this week. This exception is being made as these classes have only one day left to complete the unit of competency currently being undertaken. These classes are:

19A13E102AThursday 26 March

We are also potentially going to provide the opportunity for the classes listed below to complete the units of competency currently being undertaken as these classes only have two days to complete. There will be further communication on this to affected students and their employers. If these courses do proceed, it will be during the week commencing 30 March.

We are exploring options for remote learning, keeping in mind that it is not feasible for all units to be delivered online due to the practical components of these units.
