A deferral is a temporary suspension/postponement of your enrolment. Before seeking a deferral for your studies (temporarily suspend your
enrolment), ACCCO strongly advises you to seek advice from your employer on whether deferring you study will affect your eligibility for
employment, or the current role (position) you may hold within an education and care profession.
