Dear Students

Firstly, I would like to say thank you for your cooperation and understanding in these challenging times. For those on holidays, I hope you are finding ways to have a good time!

Online

Thank you all for your cooperation with the transition to online. I know there were some initial issues, but our innovation team has worked hard to fix any problems as they arise.

We are using a combination of Moodle, Zoom and other video conferencing technologies to provide our you with a great learning experience. We have provided training sessions for all staff and student to help them with the transition.

We have also provided a survey to all students to use their feedback to continuously improve our delivery.

Fees

We understand that you may be facing financial difficulties at this time. If you are, it is really important that you contact finance@ae.edu.au to discuss what options are available to you.

Job Finder Assistance

AE’s job placement service for students is progressing well. An expression of interest survey went out to all over 18 year old students (not VCE!) on Monday. Over 100 businesses have been called this week and already some students have been placed in jobs.

We are also creating a new page on Moodle that will have Resume templates and other useful information to help you apply and find jobs.

General

Acknowledge Education continues to monitor and review it’s polices and processes in line with government advice and direction.

We appreciate that this is a challenging time for you and thank you for your continued cooperation.

Please stay safe and continue to practice safe hygiene!

We thank you for your continued support and wish you a happy Easter.
