USI - Unique Student Identifier

It has become a Federal Government requirement that all people undergoing Vocational Educational Training (VET) must now apply for a USI (Unique Student Identifier). This includes all school students as well as adult learners.
This process can only be completed online, and the school requires a USI for all students to present any Vocational Educational Training (VET) certificates. The USI is linked to the National Vocational Education and Training (VET) Data Collection, and this means an individual’s nationally recognised training and qualifications gained anywhere in Australia, from different training organisations, will be kept all together.
Please follow the instructions below :
