Private Education Act
Gazetted in October 2009, the Private Education Act provides for the establishment of the Council for Private Education to oversee the new regulatory regime and promote best practices among private education institutions to raise standards in the private education sector. In October 2016, the Council for Private Education was renamed as the Committee for Private Education (CPE) and is a part of SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG).
Two schemes were implemented - the Enhanced Registration Framework (ERF) and a quality assurance scheme called EduTrust. Under the Enhanced Registration Framework, legal requirements pertaining to courses, managers, teachers, premises and advertisements are stipulated in the Private Education Act.
The EduTrust certification scheme provides a trust mark of quality. Private education institutions need to achieve higher and more comprehensive standards in their corporate governance and administration ,academic processes, student protection and support services, and financial viability. The EduTrust certification scheme enables them to differentiate themselves as of a higher quality by achieving certification awards that correspond to their standards in these key areas of management and student services.
All courses at the Singapore campus of James Cook University are registered with the Committee for Private Education (CPE), a part of SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG) (Registration Number 200100786K) and our operations are governed by EduTrust.
