A well established, profitable and well-run learning and education centre is for sale. With the recent major and drastic changes on the Enhanced Registration Framework (ERF), as set out under the Private Education Act and the Private Education Regulations which spells out the mandatory registration requirements and legislative obligations which all PEIs, operating in and from Singapore, must meet, this industry has become a hard-to-enter business. This centre has achieved most of the certification that any education centre would like to have.
- EduTrust. The EduTrust Certification Scheme (EduTrust) is a voluntary quality assurance scheme. While the EduTrust Certification Scheme is voluntary, it is one of the prerequisites which PEIs that enrol international students must meet to qualify for the issue of Student Passes, as stipulated by the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA). The scheme assesses a PEI’s academic and financial processes, school governance and administration, quality management, and the protection and welfare of students through fee protection, management of recruitment agents and provision of student support services. In order to be certified, a PEI needs to demonstrate it has achieved minimum level of performance in these areas.
- Council for Private Education (CPE). Established under the Private Education Act, the Council for Private Education (CPE) is a statutory board sanctioned with the legislative power to regulate the private education sector. In addition to its role as the sectoral regulator of private education institutions (PEIs), the CPE facilitates capability development efforts to uplift standards in the local private education industry.
