Our Quality Management Framework

Private Education Act/ EduTrust Certification Scheme

The Private Education Act in October 2009 saw the establishment of the Committee for Private Education (CPE) to ensure a balanced and holistic approach to regulating the private education sector under a new regulatory regime, promoting greater public and consumer awareness, and facilitating the development of the sector. This will benefit local and international students and raise standards in private education sector by providing greater choices for private students.

The new regulatory regime consists of a mandatory enhanced registration and a voluntary EduTrust Certification Scheme. The Enhanced Registration Framework (ERF) raises the standards in the industry and the EduTrust Certification Scheme, which is required for PEIs to recruit international students, enables the PEIs to level up and set higher standards. CPE will oversee both the ERF and EduTrust Certification Schemes.

Under the EduTrust Certification Scheme, private education providers must adopt a Fee Protection Scheme with the CPE-appointed service providers and provide medical insurance coverage for hospitalisation and related medical treatment throughout the entire course duration.
