Current & Future Students

We look forward to you starting your studies with us as scheduled.

If there are changes to the way your course will be delivered over the next few weeks, a Shafston representative will be in contact with you closer to your scheduled start date.

Keeping you safe when you study at Shafston is our top priority. For more information about our training delivery and health and safety advice in response to the current COVID-19 situation, please continue reading below, contact your teacher directly or call our COVID-19 Hotline on (07) 3307 4789.


We know how important it is that your apprentice or trainee is progressing through their training. To give you certainty and enable your own operational planning, we will be delivering face-to-face training where it is safe to do so along with moving some training to online formats as appropriate.

If there are any changes to our training delivery that will impact your apprentice or trainee, a Shafston representative will be in contact with you closer to their scheduled start date. Conversely, please contact Shafston immediately if your apprentice or trainee is unable to attend their training as planned.
