The Unique Student Identifier— will be formally implemented from 1 January 2015. It will make it easier for students to find, collate and authenticate their VET achievements into a single transcript. It will also ensure that students’ VET records are not lost. There will be significant benefits too for training providers resulting from the introduction of the USI. For example, the USI initiative will enable students to provide training providers with access to an online authenticated record of student attainment. This will assist with the recording of enrolment details and will help to streamline the assessment of course prerequisites, credit transfer and the assessment of eligibility for funding assistance. It is important to note that all those intending to enrol in a VET course or unit of competency from now on will require a USI - please access the website below or watch the 'You Tube' video and follow the simple instructions to get yours now!
