How to enrol

Our approach to enrolment and induction is to empower you to make informed decisions and enter a training pathway that is the right fit for you now and into the future.

Depending on the course you wish to enrol in, you may need to attend an information session. Details of upcoming sessions can be found on each of the course information pages.

Unique Student Identifier

Students undertaking nationally recognised training are required to have a Unique Student Identifier (USI) and supply this to any Registered Training Organisation that they are undertaking nationally-recognised training with.

You’ve decided to enrol

To enrol you will need to complete the following steps:

  1. Complete the Expression of Interest Form. You will be placed on a waiting list and contacted when your chosen course is next available.
  2. Once contacted, complete the enrolment form and any other forms requested.
  3. Supply identification documents.
  4. Undertake a language, literacy and numeracy (LLN) assessment (if required).
  5. On confirmation of enrolment, pay the initial enrolment fee.

Note: If you are currently in Australia on a student visa, you are not permitted to undertake a course with us. YWCA Canberra is not registered with CRICOS and it is therefore against the law for us to offer our courses to international students.


Below is a list of forms that you may need throughout your education and training journey with us. The forms can either be completed online or printed off, scanned and emailed in. They can be submitted to or can be handed in to our team at the YWCA Canberra head office.
