Unique Student Identifier (USI)

Whilst the reasons for this to happen is for the identification purpose of each student for their verification by others of their current, past and future studies this could be done smarter.
Imagine if we all had an ID card with one number that was used for everything, imagine the cost savings, imagine only having one ID number to remember, OMG how simple would that be.

see article below;

The Student Identifier Bill 2014, which will enable the introduction of a Unique Student Identifier (USI) for the Vocational Education and Training (VET) sector, is anticipated to be introduced into the Australian Parliament in the coming Autumn Sittings of 2014. The Bill will then be considered by the Parliament.

The Bill provides for a statutorily appointed Registrar to oversee the implementation and ongoing management of the USI Scheme nationally. Once the Bill is passed by the Parliament and receives Royal Assent, the Minister, in consultation with the Ministerial Council will move quickly to appoint the Registrar with a view to the full implementation of the USI Scheme from 1 January 2015.

On current indications, the Department of Industry anticipates the Bill to pass through Parliament during the Winter Sittings of 2014.

The Unique Student Identifier (USI) initiative will impact all providers of nationally recognised training once implemented. Once implemented it will become a requirement under Commonwealth legislation and their conditions of registration that providers have a valid USI for a student before they issue that student with a qualification or statement of attainment. This applies to new students, pre-enrolled students and continuing students. The process for all students to obtain a USI (or for Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) to apply on their behalf with the students’ permission) is the same.

Once USIs become available, new and continuing students undertaking nationally recognised Vocational Education and Training (VET) courses will need to have a USI to receive their statement of attainment or qualificationI.
