EduTrust Certification Scheme
The EduTrust Certification Scheme has been customized specially by the Committee for Private Education (CPE) for the private education industry in Singapore.
Established under the Private Education Act, the Committee for Private Education (CPE) is a statutory board empowered with the legislative power to regulate the private education sector. In addition to its role as the sectional regulator of private education institutions, the Committee facilitates capability development efforts to uplift standards in the local private education industry.
CPE aims to regulate the private education system more effectively and to improve its quality. Other than the enforcement of an Enhanced Registration Framework (ERF), Private Education Institutions (PEIs) can apply for a voluntary certification scheme known as EduTrust that will help to distinguish higher quality players and lift industry standards in the long run.
EduTrust covers the protection of fees paid by students and introduces additional requirements such as academic processes, corporate governance and administration processes, management of marketing agents and student support matters.
