Latest information for students
Based on the latest health advice, a mandatory vaccination policy for specified occupations and workforces within WA is being introduced by the State Government.
The policy will apply to workers in high-risk industries, those interacting with people at an increased risk of being infected with COVID-19, or people who are vulnerable to the impacts of COVID-19, or other critical workers.
If you are an apprentice or trainee working in Group 1 or Group 2 industry, or your course or training program includes an industry work placement in Group 1 or Group 2 work sites, you will need to be vaccinated according to the Group 1 or Group 2 dates, or you may not be able to successfully complete the course.
If your course includes a live works training component, in an occupation that is affected by the mandatory vaccine policy, you will need to be vaccinated. Check the relevant course page for the specific requirements of your course.
Consider the essential job requirements of entering your chosen industry. This may include mandatory vaccinations, medical screening, national police clearance, working with children check, drug and alcohol testing.
Please continue to use the SafeWA app to check-in on campus and practise good personal hygiene – wash your hands often with soap and water or use alcohol-based hand sanitiser.
Campuses are being cleaned on a regular basis, with particular attention to high contact surfaces. Hand sanitiser is available across campuses in key locations.
