Navitas response to COVID-19: Information for agents

As the global spread of COVID-19 escalates, the health and wellbeing of our staff and students continues to be our priority. Our colleges have responded quickly to the evolving situation in Europe, North America, Asia and Australasia.

Continuing delivery via online learning

In order to reduce risk for our college communities, we are moving towards online delivery of our programs. Many colleges are already delivering all their programs remotely using online platforms, virtual lectures and face to face tutorials via zoom or skype. Others are following suit in line with our university partners. Please refer to the below list in regards to the current status across our colleges.

Our priority is to ensure that students have as much support as possible and feel comfortable in these new online learning environments. Student experience and academic outcomes remain the focus of our colleges and we are working hard to maintain our diverse and inclusive learning communities.

Unless advised by local authorities, we are not closing our campuses. Students can still come to campus to use the facilities, such as the library, and access support and counselling.

Looking after students who are unwell

We continue to share government advice to students on protecting themselves and others from COVID-19. Where our colleges are open we are facilitating recommended social distancing and encouraging students and staff to use the hand sanitiser provided.

If students become unwell and are required to self-isolate, we have processes in place to make sure they are comfortable and have everything they need. All of our colleges regularly remind students what they should do if they become unwell, and where they can go for help.

We understand that this is an anxious time for our students and their families. Please be assured that our colleges are caring communities and our staff take their duty of care very seriously. You can rest assured that your students are being well looked after.

Sector-wide impact

In these unprecedented times it is our shared and collective responsibility to do what we can to support one another.

We know that the COVID-19 outbreak will impact higher education providers significantly. Our challenge, while following all advice and putting our students and staff first, is to ensure that we can come out of this the other side ready to recover and grow, without losing focus on the experience and academic outcomes of our students.

Navitas is acting now to prepare for a significant disruption to our recruitment pipeline, whilst also remaining ready to act quickly for our partners when the outlook improves. We are looking at a range of measures to ensure that we can sustain our operations during these uncertain times, without compromising our commitment to student experience and academic outcomes. Navitas will be ready to work closely with you and our university partners to support the sector’s revival when the time comes.

Please find below links to updates from each of our individual colleges on their response to the pandemic and the measures they are taking to support students. If you have specific concerns about a student or one of our programs, please reach out directly to your contact at the college.
