Karen Andrews, the Assistant Minister for Vocational Education and 
Skills, has announced a national Electronic USI Transcript Service for 
VET students. This will allow students to obtain an electronic copy of 
what they did from 2015, onwards: 

However, the purpose and status of the service is unclear. The USI 
website says "This transcript will be a useful backup for when the 
original documentation is lost ...", but also says "... it does not 
replace the qualifications or documentation issued by training 
organisations ...".

I suggest the Government needs to decide if the USI Transcript Service 
can be relied on, or not. If the information in the database can't be 
relied on, there seems to be little point in having the system.
