We’re back on site!

As of Tuesday 9 June, Batchelor Institute staff are working from our offices including Batchelor and Alice Springs (Desert Peoples Centre) campuses. Some teaching will continue on-line as our ‘face-to-face’ classes gradually return and students are being notified about the delivery of their courses.

It is also time to apply for our Preparation for Tertiary Success course, or enrol in Semester 2 Higher Education units (these are delivered in partnership with Charles Darwin University). Our VET courses remain open and students can increase their skills in health care, construction, visual arts, business, media and many more areas of training.

Our priority is to keep our communities and families safe and adhere to current government health and safety practices. The Institute has an approved COVID-19 Safety Plan in operation and our campuses, offices and vehicles have undergone intensive ‘COVID-cleaning’. All staff are required to undertake infection control training and these efforts have been acknowledged with a NT Government COVID-19 Statement of Commitment.

It’s good to be back!

Batchelor Institute – we educate to liberate.

(Please note: Our June 2020 graduation ceremony has been postponed, possibly to later this year).

Radio interview by Radio Larrikia

Lecturer Patrick McKenzie and students Darryl Tait and Ben Robinson were interviewed live-on-air on Larrakia Radio. Students were also given a tour of the state-of-the-art television and radio studios at Aboriginal Broadcasting Australia. They also had a behind-the-scenes experience of what’s it like to work in the media industry as an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander person.
