Default ECA Assessment

Hi All,

Looking at getting an ECA for points and just wondered if anyone had any info on what is comparable to the UK?

I have 13 GCSE's. 2 A S levels.
A BTEC Level 3 professional qualification which is for insurance Lloyds and London Market.
And i'm about to finish my Cert CII which is another insurance qualification.

Do i need to provide my GCSE's? Or is it just professional qualifications?
Not sure how valid they are in comparison to Canadian education.

Any help would be great.

Thanks

Professional qualifications don't count, only academic ones do. Your BTEC might be ok though, as a BTEC is recognised as a qualification regardless of subject, but if the Cert CII is only an insurance qualification (sorry, no idea what it is!), then it won't be assessed. Was your BTEC full-time and proper studying (rather than done alongside a job and part-time)?

If so, fingers crossed you may get points for it, but the best thing to do is just send everything and see what you get.

HTH, good luck.

Thanks for the response

Ahh my BTEC was on the side of my job evenings and weekends.

Unfortunately most insurance qualifications are not full time. The CII is the chartered institute of insurance, there is a canadian equivalent. The acii is equivalent to a bachelors or masters I believe. Not sure the cert cii but its like another advanced BTEC i have do that before the Diploma but its not quite degree level.

I have 6+ insurance experience so basically want the assessment to back up my experience with skill related qualifications.

Looks like i'm pretty screwed on the ECA front. So basically there is no point unless i have a degree?

Depends, do you need the points, what are you scoring on the CRS? If you're scoring enough without then don't worry about it, but if it's vital that you get more points for education then the best thing to do would be to get an ECA and just see what it says.

Would an A level equivalent qualification studied at college (Tourism was the course) awarded after the age of 18 be credited for a year at college or would this be secondary school diploma?

I read in other threads that the age you studied at plays a part in the bracket they award you with so wasn't sure if it would be worth trying. Won't bother if it would just translate to secondary school level but anything higher would be worth good points.

Hi, welcome to BE.

A Levels are deemed to be part of secondary education by CIC.

Do please start a new thread if you have questions of your own, rather than tagging them on to somebody else's.

HTH.
