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 will form the basis for those asking to extend their leadership and management skills and knowledge and enable them to be involved in the effective management of teams and desired outcomes. Participants who obtain this qualification will have a thorough understanding of the planning, organising, leading and controlling dimensions of the people manager role.

Who will benefit

This qualification will provide essential leadership and management skills and knowledge to those individuals who have line responsibilities for individuals and/or teams. Typical job roles include mid-level managers, supervisors and senior team coordinators.

Key topics

    • Manage own and team work priorities
    • Leadership styles and strategies
    • Identify and manage a diverse work team
    • Working effectively within a team culture utilising emotional intelligence skills and knowledge
    • Building and sustaining innovation in the team.

Prerequisites

Entry to the AIM WA program requires participants to be employed and have direct reports or have the support of an employer who will provide them with opportunities to demonstrate competency in managing people and conducting performance reviews.

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 how they practically manage their team’s performance, develop and use emotional intelligence strategies and identify ways to work with a diverse workforce. At this level, you would need to take responsibility for the management and leadership of people who report directly to you and the work outcomes of your 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.
