Minister for Higher Education and Skills, the Hon. Nick Wakeling MP has announced a $12.1 million funding grant to develop e-learning tools that will be available to William Angliss students.

This investment will allow William Angliss Institute to continue expanding its course offerings and deliver content in new ways to optimise learning for students and ultimately deliver even better outcomes for industry.

William Angliss Institute CEO Nicholas Hunt said this investment will make a major difference to outcomes for the students who will be able to access programs through a range of different technologies, and to the industries which rely on the expertise of our graduates.

Hunt said, “Ultimately, it means that when our students move on to work in industry, they have the latest practical skills and up-to-date theoretical knowledge needed to be productive employees in thriving businesses. We will be able to target on-campus, regional and industry-based students both on and off shore more readily.”

In addition to funding for the program that is dubbed Access Angliss, the Government’s additional investment in the Institute will allow it to re-align operations as it continues to adapt to a new operating environment.

Hunt said, “This investment will accelerate our capacity to deliver wider access to eLearning models to continue to deliver the exceptional outcomes achieved by graduates of William Angliss Institute.”

In the latest survey by the National Centre for Vocational Education Research, 90.4 per cent of William Angliss Institute graduates went on to employment or further study.
