In just six months over 2.5 million USIs were created. This reflects the successful implementation of this important VET Sector initiative, and the value of the consultation process during the design and development of the scheme.
Over the course of the year, the USI Office participated and attended targeted conferences and Careers Expos Australia wide. This provided the perfect platform to engage with individuals and Training Organisations at the coal face.
Schools were given guidance information to distribute and students were provided the opportunity to create their own USI at these events, with USI Office staff walking them through the simple steps. They had firsthand experience with the USI Registry System and were able to explore the USI website for themselves. It was good to see that the majority of the students found the USI creation process quick and simple!
Training Organisations were also engaged in the process, and seized the opportunity to learn more about the USI from staff members. They explored the system via the Training Organisation portal and observed the different system functionalities of the USI Registry System. Training Organisations were also provided with a USB key preloaded with a suite of support materials, including fact sheets, posters, student and training organisation USI information videos and URLs to the USI website. This selection of products were designed to assist them with integrating the USI into their business processes.
Over 81 per cent of all USIs have been created by individuals, demonstrating the user friendly quality of the USI Registry System and the success of our stakeholder engagement activities.
