Unique Student Identifier (USI)

From 1 January 2015, USI is mandatory for issuing a nationally recognised VET qualification or statement of attainment on completion of a course. In addition, we are required to include your USI in the data we submit to National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER) as a part of annual mandatory reporting. So please keep your USI ready at the time of filling out the enrolment form for any of our accredited courses.

If you have not obtained a USI yet, please click here to apply online. It is important that you try to find out whether you already have a USI before attempting to create a new one. To check if you already have a USI, click here and use the ‘Forgotten USI’. 

The training sessions of these courses are delivered face-to-face in the following four formats, and the academic support sessions are online:
Public course-Sydney: 
LGP office, Sydney CBD, with the option for participants to attend it (fully/partially) via an online platform.

Onsite at clients’ venue: Can be delivered at clients’ premises on demand if they have ten or more (max. 20) learners.

PS: The courses proceed as planned subject to getting the minimum required numbers. In the event the course delivery becomes financially unviable at any stage, we may have to cancel it. However, we will work with the students to come up with suitable arrangements to protect their interests. Please note that this disclaimer is only in place in case of unforeseen financial difficulties, and we will do our best to avoid such situations.
