About Private Education Act

Under the new Private Education Act, legislated in December 2009, a Committee for Private Education (CPE) was set up to regulate the private education industry in Singapore. All Private Education Institutes (PEIs) are required to comply with the regulations under the Act in order to continue operations.

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.
