Unique Student Identifier (USI)
All students (whether they are new, current, or returning) will be required to supply their Unique Student Identifier (USI) number and have it verified.
Applying for your USI is a simple process, and you can do it before you complete your enrolment. You will need to provide TDT Training with your USI for verification before your qualification or statement of attainment can be issued.
Your USI also gives you access to your online USI account, which will help keep all your training records together. TDT would be happy to assist you with this process if necessary. Please note that your USI is not a replacement for your TAFE or University student ID number, but an additional number issued by the Commonwealth Government. For more information, please visit www.usi.gov.au
The Victorian Training Guarantee (VTG)
Are you eligible?
Generally, you are eligible for a government-subsidised training place if you are:
– an Australian citizen
– an Australian Permanent Resident (holder of a permanent visa)
– a New Zealand citizen
and are any of the following:
– under 20 years of age
– seeking to enrol in a Foundation Skills List course (and do not hold a Diploma or above qualification or are receiving core skills training in other sectors)
– seeking to enrol in VCE or VCAL
– seeking to enrol in an apprenticeship
– 20 years and older and ‘upskilling’ by seeking to enrol in a course at a higher level than your existing qualification.
If you are enrolled at a school, you will not be able to receive a government-subsidised training place for a course through the Victorian Training Guarantee, unless you are undertaking the course as part of a School-Based Apprenticeship or Traineeship. The Government supports schools in other ways to offer vocational training to their students, so you should discuss all your options with your school.
You can also check what you may be eligible for using the interactive Victorian Skills Gateway Eligibility Indicator.
Courses commence after Jan 1st 2017 at TDT are no longer funded by Victorian government (Victorian Training Guarantee). Students are required to pay full fee.
