The Private Education Act was gazetted in October 2009 to provide for establishment of the Committee for Private Education (CPE), with legislative powers to regulate the private education sector more effectively. CPE has implemented a mandatory registration tier to enhance the private education standards and a voluntary quality assurance framework known as EduTrust Certification Scheme, for schools who wish to recruit students from foreign countries.

Under the EduTrust Certification scheme, private education institutes must adopt the Fee Protection Scheme (FPS) with CPE-appointed service providers and provide medical insurance coverage for hospitalization and related medical treatment for the entire course duration.

EduTrust Certification Scheme is a voluntary scheme that helps to distinguish players in Singapore’s private education industry.

Although it is a voluntary scheme, it is a pre-requisite for private education institutions who wishes to enrol international students and in order to qualify for the issue of Student Passes, as stipulated by the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA).

Mirror D’ International College is proud to have attained the 1-Year EduTrust Provisional Certification awarded by Committee for Private Education (CPE).
