Just a short article to let you know that the Unique Student Identifier (USI) Registry System is live now! You are more than welcome to create a USI for yourself and/or your employees upon their consents. The link is http://usi.gov.au/Pages/default.aspx. You only need to apply once and use it for your life time. It is important to note that while USI Registry System is available now, the scheme comes into effect from 1 Jan 2015. So you are encouraged to complete the USI processes and reduce workloads in early 2015.
Starting next year 1 Jan 2015, students undertaking VET nationally accredited courses with STES are required to provide their USI number before they can collect their Statement of Attainments or qualifications. Under legislation, we cannot issue a SOA or a qualification to a student without a verified USI.
