31st Aug, 2017 Feature story:
Navitas is proud to announce the official opening of its new Hyde Park Sydney Campus, a $70 million, state-of-the-art facility designed for the student of the future.
Chief Executive of the Business Council of Australia, Jennifer Westacott, officially opened the building, joined by Navitas Chairman, Tracey Horton AO, and CEO, Rod Jones.
Ms Westacott congratulated Navitas on the new facility, highlighting the critical link between business and the education sector to the future of the Australian economy.
"This is a fantastic new teaching and learning hub for what I am sure will be a time of growth and success.
Collaboration between business and the education sector is essential in helping Australians transition to new ways of learning and working. The great relationship between Navitas and the Business Council is a clear example of this connection at work," Ms Westacott said.
Navitas CEO Rod Jones emphasised the importance of providing all Navitas students in Sydney with welcoming and engaging learning environments.
"The student experience has always been at the heart of everything we do at Navitas and this new facility will provide the best environment and the best technology for our learners to get the most from their education."
The new facility is home to students from SIBT, the Australian College of Applied Psychology (ACAP),Navitas Professional and Navitas English. The campus is also home to the metro campuses of Western Sydney University and La Trobe University, which Navitas operates on behalf of its partners. This makes the campus a unique education hub in the heart of Sydney.
The new campus has been three years in the making and a key part of its success has been the collaborative design process. Over the course of the project, 70 staff members were involved in the effort to create a campus with flexible, technology enhanced and engaging spaces.
The resulting campus has the capacity to accommodate well over 2000 learners in 75 classrooms and is full of spaces designed to encourage students to collaborate, enhancing their learning experience and their academic outcomes.
