The Student Identifiers Bill was introduced by the Minister for Education, Sussan Ley, on behalf of Industry Minister, Ian Macfarlane.
Ms Ley said that current information about VET enrollments, participation and completion was fragmented and inaccurate.
Individuals will have control over their student identifier and can determine who can have access to their personal and educational records.
A new Student Identifiers Registrar will ensure the protection and appropriate use of information.
