COVID-19 Safety

Educare College is open for training. Whilst we remain open to provide essential services for our students, we have put in place some preventative measures designed to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

For your health and wellbeing as well as our staff, we have adopted Queensland Health’s recommendations for social distancing and cleaning. These include:

  • Maintaining social distancing of at least 1.5 metres in our classrooms and breakout areas
  • The mandatory wearing of masks across all staff and students, where we cannot socially distance.
  • Staff are double vaccinated or triple vaccinated.
  • Additional cleaning and sanitisation of surfaces, countertops, doorknobs, lifts, and classroom table and chairs
  • Providing antibacterial wipes on the counter for your use
  • Providing antibacterial sanitizer at several pause stations, bathrooms and within the college on entry to classrooms

Please note, some of our staff may decide to wear gloves by choice, and for personal hygiene reasons.

If you have recently travelled overseas, are feeling unwell, or exhibiting any symptoms of COVID-19, we ask that you contact us by phone instead of coming to the College.



COVID-19 Vaccinations and Clinical Placements

For the mandatory vocational work placement, COVID-19 vaccinations is required as outlined by the Australian Federal Government and the Queensland State Government. If you are unable or unwilling to get these vaccinations please contact your enrolments officer to discuss you options.

COVID-19 – Return of International Students in Australia

Australian borders are open to fully vaccinated students since 15 December 2021.

As per the Queensland COVID-19 Vaccine Plan, state where Educare College is located, when 90% of Queensland’s eligible population (aged 16+) is fully vaccinated, students will have no restrictions imposed upon entry to Queensland and no quarantine will be required if they are fully vaccinated with a Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) approved or recognised vaccination.

We also encourage regularly checking the Queensland’s COVID-19 statistics webpage as the latest vaccination rate will help you determine which stage of the COVID-19 Vaccine Plan Queensland is currently in.

Please be aware that these health directives may be subject to change based on further advice from Queensland Health.
