Private Education Act / EduTrust Certification Scheme
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 (EduTrust) is a quality assurance scheme administered by the CPE for Private Education Institutions (PEIs) in Singapore. It aims to distinguish PEIs that are able to consistently maintain a high standard of quality in the overall provision of education services and make continual improvements that lead to positive student outcomes.
Ngee Ann Academy has been awarded the EduTrust certification by the CPE since 2015.

Fee Protection Insurance Scheme
All EduTrust-certified Private Education Institutions (PEIs) are required to adopt the Fee Protection Scheme (FPS) to protect all fees paid by all their students. All fees refer to all monies paid by the students to be enrolled in a PEI, excluding the course application fee, prevailing GST, miscellaneous fees (non-compulsory and non-standard fee paid only when necessary or where applicable), and FPS insurance premium.
There are 2 types of FPS insurance schemes, namely, FPS Individual Insurance and FPS Group Insurance. For FPS Individual Insurance, as and when a student pays course fees to the PEIs, insurance will be purchased and each student will be issued with an individual Certificate of Insurance (COI). Under the FPS Group Insurance, COI will be issued to the PEIs by the FPS Insurance Providers with a determined insurable amount to cover all course fees to be collected by the PEI during the period of indemnity.
As a PEI which has at least two consecutive terms of 4-year EduTrust certification, Ngee Ann Academy (NAA) is eligible to adopt the FPS Group Insurance with effect from 09 March 2020. We have appointed Lonpac Insurance as the FPS insurance provider to insure all students’ fees Click here for the FPS insurance certificate.
