Individual Assessment of Educational Credentials

The College directly handles applications from Canadian and Internationally trained applicants who require an individual assessment of their educational credentials. 

The College’s process for individual assessment of educational credentials will apply to individuals who:

a)  Have relevant post-secondary educational credentials equivalent to an early childhood education diploma from an Ontario College of Applied Arts and Technology

b)  Do not hold a licence/certificate or a diploma/degree from a program on the College’s approved programs list. 

Are you considering applying for an individual assessment? 

Assessment Criteria

To determine whether an applicant meets the registration requirements, the College will use criteria based on the Early Childhood Education Program Standard approved by the Ontario Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities.

Please review the assessment criteria to determine how your application will be evaluated.
