Private Education Act
In September 2009, the Private Education Act was passed in Singapore. The Act, administered by the Council for Private Education, has brought about changes that have impacted private schools in Singapore. As a result of the Act, schools are referred to as Private Education Institutions (PEIs) and are registered with the Council for Private Education (CPE) under the Private Education Act (2009). As a result, all students must sign a contract with the school.
It is also a requirement that Private Education Institutions ensure that certain information is easily accessible to parents including but not limited to: the name of the private education institution and the names of its schools and departments/faculties where applicable, the name of every member of the Academic Board/Examination Board, the names of all of the courses, as well as subjects, modules, etc. that are offered by the Private Education Institution.
Please visit the Council for Private Education’s website at www.cpe.gov.sg for further details on the Private Education Act, the Council for Private Education or the EduTrust certification scheme.
