USI now required for all VET students
As of 1 January 2015, any student enrolled in any VET training in Australia will require a Unique Student Identifier (USI).
This applies to all students studying a VET course in their package at Lake Tuggeranong College
Students should apply on-line at www.usi.gov.au. The process should only take about 2-3 minutes. You will need some form of identification (such as a Medicare Card) to complete the process.
Students should refer to the Information Sheet for Parents and Students on the college website for instructions on how to apply for their USI.
Once the student has received confirmation of their USI, they need to then bring this to their VET teacher at College. The VET teacher will then pass this on for data entry into the ACT ETD Student management system.
If a student does not have a USI they will not get and recognition for their VET studies.
