Committee For Private Education (CPE)
The Committee for Private Education (CPE) was appointed by SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG) Board in October 2016 to carry out its functions and powers relating to private education under the Private Education Act. The CPE is supported by a team of dedicated staff from SSG to regulate the sector, provide student services, consumer education, and facilitate capability development efforts to uplift standards in the local private education industry.
The EduTrust Certification Scheme is a voluntary scheme administered by the CPE for PEIs in Singapore. Although it is a voluntary scheme, it is one of the pre-requisites which PEIs that enroll international students must meet to qualify for the issue of Student Passes. The scheme provides a means for better PEIs to differentiate themselves as having achieved higher standards in key areas of management and provision of educational services.
