Unique Student Identifer

As of 1 January 2015 all new and continuing students must hold or apply for a Unique Student Identifier (USI). A USI gives students access to a government online portal that will contain all of your nationally recognised training records and results from 1 January 2015 onwards.

Goodstart Institute of Early Learning will not process enrolmetn applications unless a valid USI has been provided, or the student has completed the USI application section within the online enrolment application and provided relevant documentation to verify their identity.

Creating a Unique Student Identifier takes less than five minutes and can be done on the USI website www.usi.gov.au by selecting create USI under the Student Entry section.

Once the student has created their Unique Student Identifier they will need to make sure their USI account is activated and the student has granted permission for Goodstart Institute of Early Learning to apply results to their page.
