Student Identifier (USI)
All students need to have a Unique Student Identifier (USI) before they enrol. It would be most helpful for prospective students if organisations and JobActives could assist their clients to get their USI, keep a record of it and ensure the clients place the number in their mobile phone. This is the link for how to get one: http://www.usi.gov.au/create-your-USI/Pages/default.aspx
