Working with Children Check
Applicants must also be prepared to undergo a Working with Children Check or equivalent. In some states, volunteers are exempt from charges for these checks.
Unique Student Identifier (USI)
Every VET student must have a USI before ABA can issue a statement of attainment or qualification to you. With a USI, you can go online and access your complete record, all in one place.
Apply for your USI individually on the USI website before you enrol.
You will be asked to provide your USI on the enrolment form.
Victorian students numbers (VIC only)
- If you are less than 25 years old and a Victorian resident, you need a Victorian Student Number (VSN) to enrol. This is a requirement of the Education and Training Reform Amendment Bill 2008.
- If you don't have a Victorian Student Number, please contact Training Administration.
We are working with the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development to allocate a Victorian Student Number (VSN) to each student at our organisation.
Language, literacy and numeracy skills assessment
You must complete a needs assessment for language, literacy and numeracy (LL&N) before you commence your course.
We use the result from your LL&N assessment to establish your pre-existing skills and to help support your learning.
This is a requirement under the VET Quality Framework.
As part of your volunteer work as a breastfeeding counsellor, educator or trainee, we publish your address and phone numbers in our confidential, internal directory. This means you may be contacted at home by mothers and community members. If this is an issue due to your work or personal circumstances, please contact Training administration
