Uni Sydney pathway provider cuts staff

Pathway provider Study Group has let-go dozens of teachers and some academic managers at its Taylors College at Waterloo, in inner-city Sydney

The college provides Uni Sydney’s foundation programme.

CMM asked CEO Alex Chevrolle if 40 people were out and if the college is restructuring programmes.

Mr Chevrolle did not provide a number but stated “we have experienced reduced student numbers during the pandemic and need to reduce our teacher numbers as a result”. He added there are “several new roles … to strengthen our student experience, compliance and quality assurance.”

He added changes will be in place by January and “no disruption” is expected to existing or new students. Uni Sydney says the pathway programme continues.

Assuming there will be any new international students arriving.
