Unique Student Identifier (USI) Mandatory from 1 January 2015

From 1 January 2015, all students undertaking Nationally Recognised training in Australia will need to have a Unique Student Identifier (USI). Once you have your USI, you can use it throughout your life, to keep a centralised online record of all your Nationally Recognised training. Whether you're studying at TAFE, a private training organisation, completing a certificate or diploma course, apprenticeship or skill set - you'll need a USI.

Overview

This qualification has a stronger focus on leadership and the essential skills and knowledge required by those on the frontline who have people management responsibilities.
Participants who obtain this qualification will gain a thorough understanding of the planning, organising, leading and controlling dimensions of the role of people management.

Who will benefit

Individuals who have been identified as potential leaders as well as those who currently supervise or manage individuals or a team. In most instances participants will be leading hands, supervisors or team leaders. 

Key topics

  • The different styles of leadership and when to use them
  • The importance of an operational plan
  • Developing effective teams and relationships in a diverse workforce
  • Managing priorities
  • Identifying areas for improvement within the team as well as self-development.

What is required to gain the qualification

Attendance on the training program/s and successful completion of the assessment requirements.

Flexible pathway
Assessment will consist of set workplace tasks for each of the clustered units. Underpinning knowledge questions and third-party reports will also supplement the assessment approach.

Intensive pathway
Assessment consists of compiling a portfolio based on workplace evidence. Underpinning knowledge questions and third-party reports will also supplement the assessment approach.

Note: Participants in either approach will be required to show their skills and knowledge in implementing an operational plan, communicating with and successfully leading teams, ensuring customer service strategies are put into practice by other staff, as well as working effectively with a diverse team.

Participants have up to 2 years to complete the training and assessment requirements of the qualification.  This time frame will vary for each individual depending on their existing level of skills and knowledge and their availability to attend the training program/s.

AIM WA recommends regular attendance on the monthly Free Qualification Support Workshops while completing the assessment requirements.

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is available for all or part of this qualification.  Please refer to the Enrolment Kit for details or the document located under Related Information on the RPL process.
