The Student Identifiers Bill 2014 has been passed, paving the way for the Unique Student Identifier scheme to start on 1 January 2015.
From 1 January 2015 onwards, all students undertaking vocational education and training will need to have their own Unique Student Identifier (USI) number. This will enable students to access their training records and be able to obtain a comprehensive and authenticated transcript of their vocational education and training records online through the national USI agency.
The Government has directed all training providers to withhold qualification certification and/or results of assessment until a USI is registered. After 1 January, 2015, Training Aid Australia cannot award qualifications and results of assessment until you have supplied us with your USI.
