COVID-19 updates and advice

As you may be aware, the WA Government has released a roadmap to ease COVID-19 restrictions. 

What does this mean for you?

Your lecturer should have contacted you to provide specific details on how your course is operating.

Many of our courses have now resumed face-to-face classes on campus, with appropriate social distancing and hygiene measures in place. Some online learning will continue through virtual classrooms for some courses.


Your lecturer will contact you to provide specific details on how your course will operate.

Students on campus should practice social distancing and good hygiene at all times. 

No student will be penalised and NMTAFE will work with students to identify solutions for their specific circumstance.

We have implemented social distancing, good hygiene practices and additional cleaning measures following current health advice.

Physical distancing and hygiene remain our best defence

All NMTAFE staff and students need to play their part to help stop any spread of COVID-19.

  • Stay home if you're sick. Do not attend work/TAFE.
  • Keep 1.5 metres away from others wherever possible. Classroom distancing protocols should be applied wherever practicable.
  • Restrict numbers of people in lifts to 2 maximum
  • Don't make unnecessary physical contact with others. Avoid physical greetings, such as handshakes, hugs and kisses
  • Wash your hands regularly for at least 20 seconds with soap and water or an alcohol-based sanitiser. Posters are displayed across all NMTAFE sites.
  • Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze. Use a flexed elbow or a tissue; if you use a tissue, dispose of it immediately and appropriately.

Our student support services continue to be available to support you during your studies, including:

  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander student support – through our Koolark Centre 
  • Disability student support 
  • International student support 
  • Jobs and Skills Centres 
  • Libraries at all campuses 
  • Student Services front counters at all campuses.

NMTAFE will contact you with specific details regarding training arrangements for your apprentice or trainee.  

Our campuses must maintain contact registers for WA Health Department COVID-19 contact tracing. To help, the WA Government has developed a free app, SafeWA which is an efficient and safe way to record patron and visitor contact details where they can check-in, using the app.

When you arrive on campus, places where you need to 'check in' will have a QR code for you to scan before entering or a registration form will be provided for you to fill out.

Campus cafes and restaurants; all campus cafes/restaurants are now open.

  • Aroma – Perth (30 Aberdeen)
  • Baytree Deli - Joondalup.
  • Chalk and Cheese Cafe - Perth (30 Aberdeen)

Other facilities and services also open at our campuses:
