Do you need child care to help you undertake training?

The Family Learning Support Program provides funding to enable learners to participate in learning where the cost of child care is a barrier to participation.

Learners who are enrolled in Government subsidised pre-accredited or accredited training at Advance Community College  should ask staff for more information about the program.

The program is available to assist parents, carers or guardians of a child or children aged between 0-6 years and who are not yet enrolled at school and need occasional child care during class time.

If you are receiving the Commonwealth funded Child Care Benefit then you may be able to receive top up funding and if you are ineligible then funding can be used to help you pay your out of pocket costs.

For more information see here Victorian Family Learning Support Program.

Unique Student Identifier (USI)

About the Unique Student Identifier (USI)

Every year, an estimated three million Australians build and sharpen their skills by undertaking nationally recognised training. From 1 January 2015, all students doing nationally recognised training need to have a Unique Student Identifier (USI). This includes students doing Vocational Education Training (VET) in schools.

A USI is a reference number made up of numbers and letters. Creating a USI is free. It creates a secure online record of your nationally recognised training that you can access anytime and anywhere, and it’s yours for life.
The USI is linked to the National Vocational Education and Training (VET) Data Collection, and this means an individual’s nationally recognised training and qualifications gained anywhere in Australia, from different training organisations, will be kept all together.

The USI will:
• link a student’s VET achievements, regardless of where in Australia they did the course
• let students easily access secure digital transcripts of their achievements (transcripts will be available from April 2016)
• give students more control over their VET information.
