How to enrol

Unique Student Identifier (USI) - Student Information

From 1 January 2015 if you are undertaking a nationally recognised program at TAFE Queensland you will need to have a Unique Student Identifier (USI). Learn all about the USI and how to get your USI for your study.

Why TAFE Queensland South West

TAFE Queensland South West empowers individuals, industry, and communities to achieve their career and business goals. Our flexible and tailored training, covering more than 30 unique industries, is delivered onsite, online, in the workplace, and at our twelve regional campuses, allowing industry and students to balance their professional, personal and learning objectives.

Anna Shirley's RPL Journey with TAFE South West

Imagine if you could gain a formal qualification that acknowledges the work experience and skills you already have, so you could minimise - and in some cases eliminate - the need to do formal study. Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) allows you to have your skills and knowledge recognised! Anna has done just that and completed a Diploma of Events through our RPL process. She and her vintage caravan Mindy now offer catering for small events from markets to school fairs and also provide a travelling cafe.
