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 and governed by the Committee for Private Education, SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG/CPE) for Private Education Institutions (PEIs) in Singapore. The SSG/CPE functions independently as the regulatory authority of the private education industry in Singapore and is responsible for all decisions under the EduTrust Certification Scheme. SSG/CPE aims to raise the standards of the industry to ensure PEIs provide a higher standard of educational services and good student/ graduate 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.

Ngee Ann Academy (NAA) has appointed Lonpac Insurance as the FPS Group Insurance provider to insure all students’ fees under the Policy Number Z/22/BM00/001005 from 01-01-2022 To 31-12-2023.
