Our Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care students definitely have reasons to celebrate. If they intend to further their studies, they have now the opportunity to use our new partnership to enter directly into a Bachelor of Education in a renowned Australian University!

We are extremely excited to announce a new articulation partnership with the Charles Sturt University. Times Academy students who complete our Diploma of Childcare Studies will receive 128 credit subject points towards a Bachelor of Education (Birth to 5 Years) at Charles Sturt University.

A recent survey showed that 81% of domestic graduates of CSU found employment within four months of completing their bachelor degree (2015 Australian Graduate Survey).

CSU scored the highest possible, five star rating for undergraduate student retention and success in getting a job (2016 Good Universities Guide). 84.2% of all graduates eligible for full-time work were successful in getting a job (Graduate Destinations Survey 2012-2014).

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
