Partnership TA + UNE

A new partnership with the University of New England is the latest highlight of our week.  Now, the students who complete the required level at TA’s English for Academic Purposes course will be deemed as having the necessary English level to attend the University of New England. This agreement also applies to conditional offers for offshore students for all UNE Campuses.

 

For the 12th year in a row, the University of New England (UNE) has earned the top five-star rating from the Good Universities Guide for the quality of student experiences. The 2018 Guide also awarded UNE five-star ratings in six other important categories, including Teaching Quality, Student Support, Graduate Employment and Median Graduate Salary. The five-star rating for “Overall Experience” has now been awarded to UNE for 12 years in a row, a record unmatched by any other Australian public university. UNE has recently received CRICOS approval and will be accepting International students in the July term to its state-of-the-art Parramatta campus. Their Bachelor of Business with a double major in Analytics and informatics is now accepting students.

 

Times Academy is a recognised leader in English for Academic purposes, with an EAP program that has weekly intakes, incorporates the 4’c of the 21st Century and has a rigorous assessment schedule to prepare graduates for success in university. Recently the Times Academy EAP program was featured at the TESOL Convention 2018 (The world’s largest ESL teaching conference) in Chicago.

 

We proud ourselves for the new partnership with the University of New England. The two schools be now working together to ensure graduates have the skills necessary for global success.

Virtual Classes !

Times Academy, while not having any cases of COVID-19, has decided to deliver Times Virtual Classes online to protect its students and staff from unnecessary contact and exposure to COVID-19.  Times Academy is unique in that we have young students and adults on the same campus and this means an increased duty of care to all.

For English Courses ————————————————————

The teachers will use Mon Mar 23 to prepare Times Virtual Classes and students will be provided with materials to work from home on that day.  From Tue Mar 24, 2020 ,we will launch Times Virtual Classes for all students to our regular timetable.  Teachers and staff will be on campus and students may come to campus to use computers there.

The current plan is to implement Times Virtual Classes until Apr 3, 2020, but this decision will be reviewed at that time.

For VET Courses —————————————————————–

The start date for term 2 for VET classes will be postpones until April 20, 2020 and Orientation will be April 16, 2020. The trainers and staff will use this time to prepare Times Virtual Classes. From Monday April 20, 2020 we will launch Times Virtual Classes for all students to our regular timetable. Teachers and staff will be on campus and students may come to campus to use computers there. This means the end of term will also be adjusted to fit in all weeks of student and students will have a shorter holiday at the end of term.

The current plan is to implement Times Virtual Classes for the term, but this will be reviewed weekly. As the COVID 19 risks change, we will reopen classes for face-to-face learning when/of we can
