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 reflects the role of individuals working as developing and emerging leaders and managers in a range of enterprise and industry contexts.

As well as assuming responsibility for their own performance, individuals at this level provide leadership, guidance and support to others. They also have some responsibility for organising and monitoring the output of their team.

They apply solutions to a defined range of predictable and unpredictable problems, and analyse and evaluate information from a variety of sources.

The volume of learning for a Certificate IV qualification is typically six (6) months to two (2) years.

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.

Prerequisites

Entry to this AIM WA program requires participants to ideally have a minimum of 2 years industry experience and have some supervisory responsibilities as part of their current role.  Participants are also required to have direct reports or have the support of an employer who will provide them with opportunities to demonstrate competency in the various aspects of managing a team and team tasks.

What is required to gain the qualification

AIM WA provides three (3) distinctly different pathways to choose from, in order to gain this qualification;

Flexible Delivery (Training and Assessment Pathway)

The flexible option provides various program delivery dates throughout the year for individual participants who prefer to schedule and attend the individual unit of competency based programs, according to their own schedules and availability. Access to all assessment tools is available to the participant upon successfully enrolling in the qualification.

This option can also be customised for corporate clients.

Intensive Pathway (RPL Assessment Pathway)

The Intensive option provides five (5) consecutive days of structured professional development delivered face to face in the classroom.  Suitable for participants with extensive leadership and management experience, who can commit to attending five (5) full days. This program is considered further professional development, followed by an RPL assessment. Access to all assessment tools is available to the participant upon successfully enrolling in the qualification.

RPL Pathway

Before choosing this pathway candidates must fulfil the following criteria;

  • Have a minimum current industry experience of two (2) years, which must be the last two (2) years.
  • Be currently employed in a supervisor role
  • Be able to produce documented evidence to support the claim for RPL in each unit.

Access to all assessment tools is available to the participant upon successfully enrolling in the qualification.

All participants, regardless of the pathway option chosen, are requested to complete a self-assessment questionnaire in relation to each unit of competence. This allows the prospective participant to determine which pathway best suits their learning journey towards the qualification. The outcomes of the survey will also help the RTO to identify the participant’s ability to successfully undertake the qualification and the suitability of the pathway chosen.

Participants have up to 2 years to complete the qualification requirements for all three (3) of the above pathway options. This time frame will vary for each individual depending on their existing level of skills and knowledge and their ability to attend the training program/s.

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