You can be an eligible school-leaver, entering the workforce for the first time, re-entering the workforce, existing workers or simply wishing to change careers.

Australian Apprenticeships offer:

  • A great way to get a head start in a chosen career
  • Paid work and structured training that can be on-the-job, off-the-job or a combination of both
  • Competency based, which means you can complete your training faster if you reach the required skills level
  • Existing skills and prior experience are recognised and course credit granted, potentially reducing formal training time
  • Available as full-time or part-time
  • A pathway from school to work

Obtaining a Unique Student Identifier (USI)

Everyone who undertakes nationally recognised training must have a Unique Student Identifier (USI) so they can enrol and have their qualification recorded on a secure national register. This is beneficial so an individual can track their qualifications, and can readily print off information for employers when applying for a job.

Go to Unique Student Identifier (USI) to create your individual USI. It is an easy 5-step process and there is help on the website. Further information regarding the USI is included in the TURSA Trainee Information Handbook.
