External Integrated Summative Assessment

The EISA is a national exam that is meant to ensure a uniform standard for the qualification. The exam is set and administered by the ETDP SETA as an AQP.

Candidates can only register for this exam if they have successfully completed the knowledge, practical skills and workplace components of the Occupational Certificate: Early Childhood Development.

The exam is set in such a way that candidates are required to integrate knowledge, practical skills and work experience, i.e. the emphasis is on the application of what they have learned. The exam is strictly controlled by the QCTO and has to comply with all their regulations.
